520    "Fairness and equity, universal rights and freedoms, 
       representative, balanced, democratic governance, the 
       notion that no one is above the law-- these are ideas many
       of us cherish in the modern world. But where did they come
       from? According to some scholars, these features of 
       modernity have their roots in the period between 800 and 
       200 BCE. In this "Axial Age," they state, crucial 
       intellectual, moral, and political changes took place more
       or less simultaneously in five core regions across Eurasia,
       reaching from present-day Greece, Israel-Palestine, Iran 
       and India to China. Seshat History of the Axial Age 
       challenges the view that there was a single Axial Age in 
       human history. Applying insights from a massive historical
       research project, Seshat: Global History Databank, the 
       volume reveals that societies all over the world 
       gravitated more strongly towards egalitarian ideals and 
       constraints on political authority--traits usually 
       associated with axiality--as they reached a tipping point 
       in the evolution of social complexity. In fourteen 
       chapters, the authors survey earlier and later periods in 
       history as well as developments in regions previously 
       neglected in Axial Age discussions, thus expanding the 
       Axial Age debate well beyond first-millennium BCE Eurasia.
       They explore whether there really was an Axial Age, where 
       and when key changes that characterize modern life 
       actually developed, and what drove societies to become 
       more equitable and law-bound."--|cProvided by publisher.
