TRAGEDY. AND. HOPE. A History of. THE WORLD in Our Time. Carroll Quigley. First published in by. V. THE MACMILLAN COMPANY, NEW YORK. In Carroll Quigley published The Evolution of Civilizations. . and statements made by professor Carroll Quigley in Tragedy and Hope. It is my sincere. TRAGEDY AND HOPE shows the years as a period of transition from Carroll Quigley, professor of history at the Foreign Service.
He believed that knowledge cannot be divided into parts, that the world can be viewed only as an interlocking, complex system. This view complemented his life: he had reveled in the traditions and contrasts of his neighborhood, eschewed fame in favor of keeping his emotional and social development on track. In an age characterized by violence, extraordinary personal alienation, and the disintegration of moral values, Quigley chose a life dedicated to rationality. He wanted an explanation that in its very categorization would give meaning to a history which was a record of constant change. Therefore the analysis had to include but not be limited to categories of subject areas of human activity. It had to describe change in categories expressed sequentially in time.
He tried to capture the flow of history, the deep longstanding streams flowing through it, and the relative few significant forces propelling it.
The idea that history can be looked at this way is a powerful one, especially to an impressionable undergraduate. It made you feel like you were working with "big time" ideas and real scholarship. With this said, I have to also admit that without the personal experience, I doubt I would have rated the book as highly as I do.
The book is under-referenced and reads as if it is a collection of detailed lecture notes. To some extent that is OK, but I increasingly find it important to double check the sources and examine detail below the level of the main story.
Quigley is also prone to considerable generalization and I came to view my subsequent education as a process of finding out which of my undergraduate revelations held up under more focused scrutiny.
Many of Quigley's did not hold up, although the process of coming to realize that was itself a valuable education.
