Van Bueren is a man's man. He likes scotch, long legs and Die Hard. His world is direct with no room for spoilsports. He paints, he philanders and he loves bacon. When he goes to an LA party and has his lights punched out, he wakes up in Paris and has to walk a fine line between disbelief and acceptance. The Pantheon has been working on project Paragon for a long time, and they need new talent, like Van. Apparently, the math and science folks have got it all wrong. Armed with that knowledge, people are now trying to kill him! With the help of his mysterious bombshell assistant, Evette, and his totally boss Mustang GT, Katie, he's got to stay one step ahead of his enemies, and two steps ahead of the trail of emotional wreckage he leaves in his wake. Tossed between two feuding secret societies, will he survive to once again swing his libido like a medieval weapon? Will he save the day, the girl and, more importantly, his car?

This engaging text offers a brief, readable description of our common Western heritage as it began in the first human societies and developed in ancient Greece and Rome, then through the Middle Ages. Providing a tightly focused narrative and interpretive structure, Brian A. Pavlac covers the basic historical information that all educated adults should know. His joined terms "supremacies and diversities" develop major themes of conflict and creativity throughout history. The text is also informed by five other topical themes: technological innovation, migration and conquest, political and economic decision-making, church and state, and disputes about the meaning of life. Written with flair, this easily accessible yet deeply knowledgeable text provides all the essentials for a course on Western civilization.
