This text, which pioneered the brief format for this subject, provides a comprehensive view of the development of Western civilization in half the pages of other texts on this subject. Not simply an abridgement of a longer book, this text offers students in survey courses a concise, lucid narrative. Broad coverage of political, social, cultural, and religious themes gives instructors the flexibility to tailor their instruction, and to assign supplementary materials as desired.

About the Author:

Thomas H. Greer has studied and taught Western civilization for more than thirty-five years. He was one of the founders and developers of the highly regarded one-year humanities course at Michigan State University, completed by over 100,000 students, and served as department chairman. He is a specialist in contemporary world affairs. Among his publications are AMERICAN SOCIAL REFORM MOVEMENTS: THEIR PATTERN SINCE 1865; THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE AMERICAN DOCTRINE OF AIR POWER, 1917-1941; THE ARMY AIR FORCES IN WORLD WAR II (coauthor); WHAT ROOSEVELT THOUGHT: THE SOCIAL AND POLITICAL IDEAS OF F.D.R.; and CLASSICS OF WESTERN THOUGHT (general editor).

Gavin Lewis received his Bachelor of Arts from Oxford University and his Ph.D. from Princeton University. His research and publications include studies of central European history, Sumerian civilization, Athenian politics and religion, print and culture in the Renaissance, and the decipherment of Egyptian writing. He has over thirty years' experience teaching Western civilization to undergraduates. He is the author of CHURCH AND PARTY IN POLITICAL CATHOLICISM: THE CLERGY AND THE CHRISTIAN SOCIAL PARTY IN LOWER AUSTRIA, 1887-1907; TOMS MASARYK; and CLOSE-UPS OF THE PAST: WESTERN CIVILIZATION IN CASE STUDIES.
