About This Item

Chantilly, Virginia: Teaching Company, 2006. DVD. New. Forty-eight 30-minute lectures on eight DVDs in original case along with a paperback Course Guidebook, all in original shrink-wrap.

Starting with the Renaissance, the culture of the West exploded. Over the next 600 years, rapid innovations in philosophy, technology, economics, military affairs, and politics allowed what once had been a cultural backwater left by the collapse of the Roman Empire to dominate the world. These 48 lectures explore how—and why—this happened.
