In this illuminating account, originally intended for French schools and now translated for the first time, one of the century's greatest historians surveyed 'the main contemporary civilizations'. Separate sections examine the Muslim world, Black Africa, the Far East, Western Europe, (from the fall of the Roman Empire to political union), 'the other Europe' to the East, the European civilizations of the New World, and 'the English-speaking universe'. Even an educational text, Braudel once suggested, can be 'a tale of adventure' - provided it is written with a 'simplicity that is clarity, the light of intelligence'. This is present throughout A History of Civilizations
