This two-volume introduction to Western Civilization helps students work toward an understanding of the past -- and the "humanness" that lies at the root of that past -- through personal examination of a broad range of primary sources of history. Chronologically organized, thematically based, and problem oriented, it confronts students with questions, attitudes, problems, and controversies that human beings have struggled with for centuries -- political, social, economic, religious, intellectual, and scientific -- and which have meaning for their own lives, today.From the Back Cover:
Extensively illustrated and exceptionally appealing in its narrative style, this best-selling, classic survey of the history of Western civilization — with emphasis on Western European societies — offers a short, crisp, and balanced presentation of traditional and “new” subjects, approaches, and controversies, and shows throughout how the historian goes about the craft of research, interpretation, and writing. The book is available in a variety of volume splits to accommodate different lesson lengths. It includes extracts from historical and contemporary sources and documents, discussions on “doing history,” detailed timelines.
