From the Publisher:

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:

Key Benefit: This two-volume introduction to Western Civilization helps readers 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. Key Topics: 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. It shows that issues are not nearly as simple as they may appear at first glance, that historical sources often contradict one another, and that issues often involve basic questions regarding historical development, human nature, moral action and, practical necessity.
