381 pp, 9 1/4" H. "(R)estores history to its status as a living art, encompassing the major epochs from the time of Judaism to the present, not as a chronicle of dates and events, but as major cycles in the tides of human destiny. (Lower's) aim is to fix western man's present position in the course of time and the flux of history, and further, to discern the probable future of humankind in the gradual unfolding of large-scale trends and movements. Ranging over the beginnings, developments and ends of cultures through the centuries, (he) comes to a view of the present as a revolutionary age, prelude to imminent chaos."
