The West in the World, Fifth Edition, prompts students to take an active, analytical approach to understanding history and historical change. Readers will come to appreciate that history does not happen in isolation but rather is the consequence of a complex set of intersecting events, forces, and human actions among which there are cause-and-effect links that extend into the present day. As it compellingly tells the story of Western civilization, The West in the World encourages a critical examination and analysis of major events and themes. The fifth edition retains the medium length of previous editions, long enough to present a comprehensive, rich narrative but concise enough to give instructors the flexibility to supplement reading with other sources and books.
The fifth edition of The West in the World includes the exciting addition of LearnSmart and SmartBook, McGraw-Hill’s online adaptive learning and reading systems. LearnSmart and SmartBook are the only adaptive learning programs proven to improve performance. LearnSmart and SmartBook help students study more efficiently and retain more knowledge, allowing instructors to focus valuable class time on higher-level concepts.

Joyce Salisbury is Professor Emerita of History at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, where she taught history of undergraduates for more than twenty years. She received a Ph.D in medieval history from Rutgers University in New Jersey. She is a respected historian who has published many articles and has written or edited more than ten books, including the critically acclaimed Perpetua's Passion: Death and Memory of a Young Roman Woman, The Blood of Martyrs: Unintended Consequences of Ancient Violence, The Encyclopedia of Women in the Ancient World, and the Greenwood Encyclopedia of Daily Life, which won many awards for its creative organization and timely presentation of the material. In 2010, Salisbury published a second edition of her classic work on the history of attitudes towards animals: The Beast Within: Humans and Animals in the Middle Ages. Salisbury is an award-winning teacher, who was named "Professor of the Year for Wisconsin in 1991" by CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education), a prestigious national organization. Since retiring from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Salisbury has taught twice on Semester at Sea, a program sponsored by the University of Virginia that teaches students as they circumnavigate the world. Salisbury brought a global perspective to the history of Western Civilization while teaching abroad, and the fourth edition of The West in the World has benefitted from her interaction with students as they make sense of our twenty-first century global civilization.
