There’s a new source for primary sources: The West in the World. The updated edition features a new emphasis on primary sources, within the text, on the accompanying Primary Source Investigator CD, and on the text’s website. In this social history woven into a political and cultural framework, Sherman and Salisbury examine how the West influenced and was influenced by civilizations around the globe. This groundbreaking text distinguishes itself by fully integrating visual history within the narrative. The authors show that works of art serve as primary sources of information about specific periods in history. The West in the World also includes visual learning tools such as "Thinking about Geography" maps with guiding questions, and timelines at the beginning and end of each chapter. This complete, innovative coverage of western civilization is a midsize book, providing more detail than brief books do, without being unmanageable (as some larger survey texts have become).
