This documentary series examines why Western civilization has dominated the world for the past five centuries and whether it will continue to do so. The investigation identifies six attributes that spurred the rise of the West, including competition, science, modern medicine, democracy, consumerism, and work ethic, and explains why the East may now be taking the lead.
