THE WESTERN PERSPECTIVE is a history of Western civilization from 8000 B.C. to the present. In addition to the chief political developments, this text offers students comprehensive treatments of economic trends, cultural and intellectual movements, daily life and social change, the changing position and role of women, and the status of ethnic and religious groups. Europe's history is placed in the context of world history--developments in Africa, Asia, the Americas, and the Pacific are discussed in terms of their relationship with events in Europe.
