He is remembered for his teaching work as a professor at Georgetown University , and for his academic publications. From until , he taught a two-semester course at Georgetown on the development of civilizations. According to his obituary in The Washington Star , many alumni of Georgetown's School of Foreign Service asserted that this was "the most influential course in their undergraduate careers". In addition to his academic work, Quigley served as a consultant to the U.
His course on the history of civilization was extraordinary in its scope and in its impact on students. Like the course, The Evolution of Civilizations is a comprehensive and perceptive look at the factors behind the rise and fall of civilizations. Quigley examines the application of scientific method to the social sciences, then establishes his historical hypotheses. He poses a division of culture into six levels from the abstract to the more concrete. He then tests those hypotheses by a detailed analysis of five major civilizations: the Mesopotamian, the Canaanite, the Minoan, the classical, and the Western. Foreword, selective bibliography, preface to the first edition, diagrams, tables and maps, index.
