Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

Civilization in the West blends social and political history with a myriad of maps and images that bring history to life.

 

The authors tell a compelling story of Western Civilization that is enhanced by images and maps.   “The Visual Record” chapter openers draw readers in by using illustrations that underscore a dominant theme of the chapter. New “Image Discovery” features guide readers to interrogate images, understand their contexts, and unpack their multiple meanings. The dramatic, changing contours of the West are explored through Map Discovery features and Geographical Tours of Europe.  

Review:

Civilization in the West, Seventh Edition, Volume I
Mark Kishlansky, et al.

“This text is clear, well-organized, and easy for my students to follow. I have never had more satisfied students over a thirty-five year career.”

–Don Mohr, University of Alaska — Anchorage

“Students typically associate a history classes with being dull and dreary with an accompanying dry text. This book entices students to read the chapters not only because they are assigned but because the students are eager to read them.”

–Janilyn M. Kocher, Richland Community College

“I have seen texts that are dry, monotonous, and chocked with detail. I have seen others that present the material so lightly that it may blow away. This text is a combination of detailed information in an engaging and interesting presentation.”

–John S. Kemp, Truckee Meadows Community College

In Civilization in the West, the dramatic, changing contours of Western Civilization are explored through a compelling narrative and a rich image-based approach. In the new Seventh Edition, updated throughout, the authors blend social and political history with an exceptional map and image program to engage students and make the material more accessible.
