In case you can't read things in reverse, the title of this textbook is Western Civilization: The Continuing Experiment, volume B: 1300-1815.
I don't know about you, but I found this to be all sorts of amusing. Continuing Experiment? As in, the jury's still out on whether or not Western Civilization is a good idea? On how we should hard wire this thing we call civilization? On whether or not we can call western civilization a success? Warning: it could still go either way people, so now's the time to straighten up and fly right.
