Perhaps, his mention by Bill Clinton in his inaugural address has maintained interest. There have been other drivers of interest for Quigley and this volume as well, not all of them laudable or fair. I rated the book highly because of the impact it and the class for which it was read has had on me. The This book still gets a lot of interest, even though Quigley has been dead for over 40 years. The agendas he raised have remained with me ever since.

He was the first professor I had who was a real showman in class, from the giving of exams to the telling of funny stories. What was so important, however, was that he worked very hard to give meaning to the complex of facts, events, and people that comprise world history. He tried to capture the flow of history, the deep longstanding streams flowing through it, and the relative few significant forces propelling it.

The idea that history can be looked at this way is a powerful one, especially to an impressionable undergraduate. It made you feel like you were working with "big time" ideas and real scholarship.

With this said, I have to also admit that without the personal experience, I doubt I would have rated the book as highly as I do. The book is under-referenced and reads as if it is a collection of detailed lecture notes. To some extent that is OK, but I increasingly find it important to double check the sources and examine detail below the level of the main story. Quigley is also prone to considerable generalization and I came to view my subsequent education as a process of finding out which of my undergraduate revelations held up under more focused scrutiny.

The devil is almost always in the details and overly broad stories can encourage hero worship rather than critical thinking. This is a broad story of Western History and I am thankful to Quigley for introducing me to his variant of it.

There is a lot of good history being published these days. I am still reading it with avid interest due to Carroll Quigley and Tragedy and Hope, which I read for his two semester class in the World since
