This intercourse has been potent in many important directions- in affairs of race, religion, and trade, the vital relation between Asia and Europe has either created or solved difficult problems in human existence.

It has also been continuous, and though there have been years when this interchange has seemed of small effect, the true interpretation of world history can be given only when the struggle between Orient and Occident is recognized as an ever present factor. Then the simplest events of daily life in regions where the forces of two civilizations have joined battle for dominion become significant of great issues. The struggle is, furthermore, a signal example of the unity of history- older than historical chronicles, the contest touches the lives of men and nations to-day as it did when Jason sailed in search of the Golden Fleece, or when the champions of Greece crossed over to Asia in pursuit of Helen.This conflict between East and West is an essential part of the thought and life of the ancient world.

The Homeric epic derives from it- it is embodied in the story of Zeus and Europa, who is shown as the daughter of an Asiatic king- it is the inspiration of Herodotus and Xenophon- Marathon, Salamis, and Platea tell of the antagonism of two continents.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
