Asia in the Making of Europe, Volume II: A Century of Wonder. Book 1: The Visual Arts, Volume 2,Boek 1
University of Chicago Press, 1965 - 421 pagina's
This is the second volume in a series that traces, century by century, the role of Asia in the making of Europe.
The rise to world dominance of the Western nations in modern times and the rapid industrial growth of the West, which outpaced the East in technical and military achievements, have led to a historical eclipse of the ancient and brilliant cultures of Asia.
Historican Donald F. Lach, in his influential scholarly work, Asia in the Making of Europe, points out that an eclipse is never permanent, that this one was never total, and that there was a period in early modern times when Asia and Europe were close rivals in brilliance and mutual influence.
