    DescriptionWith today's stormy climate of economic turmoil, mass migrations, religious fervor, and social, political, and legal breakdowns, many Americans are asking serious questions, yet hearing vaporous answers. Are the woes of today much different from those of the past? More importantly, can we learn from the past? In The Winds of Time, Rich DiSilvio not only retells the sweeping story of Western history but he simultaneously analyzes political and religious leaders and seminal doers to help answer these questions. From ancient Greece and Rome to modern America, DiSilvio offers a concise and coherent rendition of Western civilization from a very pragmatic perspective. In essence, great nations survive because of great actions, not passivity. Also included are narrative vignettes. These unique literary creations are semi-historical snapshots of various characters' lives. By giving many prominent leaders of history a voice, the author breathes life into the musty old pages of history to not simply entertain but also enlighten. With vitality and wit the lives of Augustus, Constantine, Da Vinci, Darwin, Edison, Einstein, Hitler, FDR and others all vividly spring to life. A must read for any American that appreciates an unsugarcoated approach to viewing life or assessing the provocative people that risked life and limb to truly shape our world.
