Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The editor assigned to a work entering its Ninth Edition takes on a special obligation. Since 1958, John Beatty and Oliver Johnson's Heritage of Western Civilization has proved a valuable tool for countless students and instructors. Our revision of the Eighth Edition was carried out with full knowledge and respect for the fact that we were working on a book that has stood the test of time. Still, no work such as this reaches a Ninth Edition unless its editors are constantly on the lookout for ways to improve on past efforts.

In a sense, our challenge was very much like that facing any teacher of Western Civilization. Given limited time, or in our case limited space, what should the instructor include and what must he or the leave out? The latter task was at least as difficult as the former. A strong argument could be made for the retention of every selection in the Eighth Edition. However, our mandate was to broaden the range of topics and authors included in this anthology without increasing its length and, in service of that goal, tough choices had to be made. We hope that the inclusion of authors such as the Muslim warrior and courtier Usamah Ibn-Munqidh, the Italian matriarch Alessandra Strozzi, and the Dominican witch hunters Heinrich Kramer and James Sprenger will provide readers with p richer, more complex picture of Western history.

Changes to the Ninth Edition:

The most important change to the Ninth Edition of the Heritage of Western Civilization is the inclusion of fourteen new selections, six of which were authored by women. New sources include:

Volume I:
Esarhaddon, "Second Inscription of Esarhaddon"
Xenophon, "The Charactr of Cyrus"
Aristotle, "The Care of Infancy"
Plutarch, "The Life of Crasus"
Hildegard, Letters
Usamah Ibn-Munqidh, "An Appreciation of the Frankish Character"
Laura Cereta, Letters
Alessandra Strozzi, Letters

Volume II:
Malleus Malificarum
Olympe de Gouges, "Declaration of the Rights of Women"
Henry Mayhew, London Labour and the London Poor
Catherine Booth, "God of Education"
W.E.B. DuBois, The Souls of Black Folk
Gusta Dawidson-Draenger, Justina's Diary

In addition, the introductions to every source in both volumes of Heritage have been revised with an eye to providing students with the necessary context to explore the selection in question, while avoiding the imposition of any particular analytical framework on the material. Finally, in an effort to help facilitate students' close reading and critique of the selections, questions for consideration have been added to the introduction to each source and at the end of the general introduction to each major section.
