This is the searching question that the author discusses in this finely written and stimulating inquiry into the cultures that have preceded our own. The glories of Greece and Rome, the challenge of the Industrial Revolution, the adventure that was to be the new Russia, the mysticism of India and the humanism of China are examined.
