Description - At the Dawn of Modernity by David Levine
This examination of the social history of modernization investigates the centuries that followed the year 1000, when a new kind of society emerged in Europe. New commercial routines, new forms of agriculture, new methods of information technology, and increased population densities all played a role in the prolonged transition away from antiquity and toward modernity. The text highlights both the "top-down" and "bottom-up" changes that characterized the social experience of early modernization.
