Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the analysis of the ideological sources behind the multicultural effort to provincialize the history of Western civilization. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. This book, The Uniqueness of Western Civilization, seeks to trace the ideological sources behind the multicultural effort to provincialize the history of Western civilization. It assesses the empirical adequacy of a highly influential set of revisionist works published in the last two decades dedicated to the pursuit of dismantling the Eurocentric consensus on the rise of the West. The book argues that the traditional Eurocentric historiography on the rise of the West still holds much significance despite the unrelenting criticisms it has faced in the last few decades. Finally, it insists that the development of a liberal-democratic culture was an indispensable component of the rise of the West.

Keywords: Eurocentric consensus; ideological sources; liberal-democratic culture; Western civilization
