Morett, Xavier P.5 WHAP September 21, 2013 Chapter 4 Outline- Classical Civilizations in the Mediterranean and Middle East I. The Classical civilizations of the Mediterranean and Middle East arguably set the foundations for much of the Western world’s culture with innovations in religion, art, navigation, and even philosophy and science. Although the civilizations here were quite large and powerful, they lagged behind the Eastern world in technological and political innovation. It is because of this lag that the civilizations here are unable to bounce back after their collapse as China and India did. II.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
