This monumental series, acclaimed as a "masterpiece of comprehensive scholarship" in theNew York Times Book Review, reveals the impact of Asia's high civilizations on the development of modern Western society.

In Volume III:A Century of Advance, the authors have researched seventeenth-century European writings on Asia in an effort to understand how contemporaries saw Asian societies and peoples
A century of wonder by Donald F Lach( Book )

8 editions published between 1970 and 1994 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation This is the second volume in a series that traces, century by century, the role of Asia in the making of Europe. The rise to world dominance of the Western nations in modern times and the rapid industrial growth of the West, which outpaced the East in technical and military achievements, have led to a historical eclipse of the ancient and brilliant cultures of Asia. Historican Donald F. Lach, in his influential scholarly work, Asia in the Making of Europe, points out that an eclipse is never permanent, that this one was never total, and that there was a period in early modern times when Asia and Europe were close rivals in brilliance and mutual influence
