Civilization in the West blends social and political history with an exceptional map and image program to engage students and bring history to life.
The authors tell a compelling story of Western Civilization that is enhanced by an image-based approach. “The Visual Record” chapter openers draw students in by using illustrations that underscore a dominant theme of the chapter. New “Image Discovery” features guide students to interrogate images, understand their contexts, and unpack their multiple meanings. The dramatic, changing contours of the West are explored through an exceptional map program, through Map Discovery features, and through Geographical Tours of Europe.

Civilization in the West, Seventh Edition, Combined Volume Mark Kishlansky, et al.
“This text is clear, well-organized, and easy for my students to follow. I have never had more satisfied students over a thirty-five year career.”
–Don Mohr, University of Alaska — Anchorage
“Students typically associate a history classes with being dull and dreary with an accompanying dry text. This book entices students to read the chapters not only because they are assigned but because the students are eager to read them.”
–Janilyn M. Kocher, Richland Community College
“I have seen texts that are dry, monotonous, and chocked with detail. I have seen others that present the material so lightly that it may blow away. This text is a combination of detailed information in an engaging and interesting presentation.”
–John S. Kemp, Truckee Meadows Community College
