From The Editors:


The Comparative Civilizations Review will publish analytical studies and interpretive essays primarily concerned with:

  • the comparison of whole civilizations,
  • the development of theories and methods especially useful in comparative civilizational studies,
  • accounts of intercivilizational contacts, and,
  • significant issues in the humanities or social sciences studied from a comparative civilizational perspective.


By "a comparative civilizational perspective" we mean

  • the use of evidence from more than one civilization (the various national traditions of the modem West being regarded, in this respect, as constituents of a single civilization) and,
  • a method likely to throw new light either on the origins, processes, or structures of civilizations or on the problems of interpreting civilizations.
