Modernity & West vs.East
I'm studying economics...but I got a homework related to history...and sorrowfully my knowledge about history is very poor...
I should create a homework (8 page) about this topic:
Why "Western" civilization / culture reached a higher level than "Eastern" civilization / culture during history even though at one time the "Eastern" civilization had a much higher level. What are the reasons.
Why the development / progress in "Eastern" civilization / cultures became slower or even stopped?
I have been searching on the internet, in the library but I failed to find any resource sepcific to this topic.
I don't even now at which time the break-point was when the gap between the civilizations became considerable.
I would like to ask for your help to find some starting point / to give me some advice.
Sorry for my poor English and lack of knowledge.
Thanks in advance.
