This concise survey of Western civilization provides an exceptionally balanced survey of the political, social, and cultural development of Western civilization. Offering one of the richest accounts of the social history of the West, this book also presents an exceptionally vivid account of its religious and intellectual history as well as outstanding coverage of its political and diplomatic history. It contains several essential discussions: slavery in ancient Greece and Rome; Islam and the Byzantine Empire; Christine de Pisan, Humanism, and the Spanish Empire in the New World; women in the Enlightenment and the emergence of a print culture; women in the French Revolution; late nineteenth and early twentieth century women's history; and recent events in eastern Europe. The second edition of The Western Heritage has been revised to present a greater emphasis on the history of Europe and South America through the removal of a substantial amount of information on American history. This edition also includes a new map feature which highlights significant historical developments by placing them in a geographical context as well as a restructured and revised chapter on Europe and the Soviet-American rivalry. An essential reference on European and world history for every reader.
