This book traces the rise of the West from the Greek and Roman empires and through the Portuguese, Spanish, British, French, German, Italian and American empires. The current Western domination of the World began when Portugal found a sea route to India and Spain re-discovered the New World. Initially the rise of the West was constrained by Muslim control of the Middle East and powerful counties in Asia such as China, Japan and India. But after the industrial revolution of the 18th century the growth of the military and economic power of Western Europe and North America far exceeded that of Asia and the Middle East. Instead of engaging in trade which benefits both trading partners, all of the Western empires engaged in military invasions to colonize and steal land and resources. This created the permanent conflict between the imperial West and those colonized. The book predicts that the West will lose its post 18th century dominance because of the global shift to the Emerging Economies.

Dr. Rocky M. Mirza has a Ph.D. in economics, from Simon Fraser University, and a B.Sc. in economics, from the University of London. This book is the last of a trilogy on American and Western imperialism. The two prequels are Rise and Fall of the American Empire: a Re-Interpretation of History, Economics and Philosophy; 1492-2006, and American Invasions: Canada to Afghanistan: 1775 to 2010. These books re-interpret history and Western colonizations, from a non-Western, Third World, perspective. They deal with economics and politics as well as history. They are great summaries of a long historical period, from Alexander the Great, to the rise of Emerging Economies like China. Dr. Mirza has also co-authored textbooks and Study-Guides in microeconomics and macroeconomics, and written several courses for Thompson Rivers University. He is currently an Open Learning Faculty Member of Thompson Rivers University.
