Synopsis

This book is about the thirty most influential works in Western civilisation. From the ancient Greeks to modern times; at any rate the account is ultimately subjective however I have tried to approach the subject matter in an informative and educative way. The choices made are by and large in some measure controversial, especially the inclusion of Hitler's Mein Kampf. This book is not to be taken as an authoritative account of the Western landscape; the only criterion on which it ought to be judged is on the word 'influential'. On this measure, it demonstrates the diverse, the good, and ultimately the evil way in which this has manifested itself. Given the constraints of time, one ought to suggest that perhaps there were more worthy candidates to include such as Alexander Fleming and his discovery of penicillin or the works of Leonardo da Vinci. This book allows for such sad limitation whilst appreciating that readers of it will have their own suggestions or lists. All this book is offering is a meagre contribution to the existing debate.
