9780205887910: Black and White Edition of The West: A Narrative History, Combined Volume (3rd Edition)

The book students will read: Concise. Relevant. Accessible.

 

The West: A Narrative History is a concise but not abridged introduction to the West, encompassing all cultures that trace their ancestry to the ancient Mediterranean world. It is not a reduced version of a larger study, but a full narrative of the West written concisely.

 

This learning program is built around a Key Question in every chapter, a feature that shows students why western civilization is relevant for them. Students will discover the key questions that define the past are in many ways the same key questions of today. Since students often see conflict between a Christian “West” and an Islamic “East” in today’s society, the authors highlight the ongoing role the Middle East has played in shaping the West. Students will understand the links between people of the West and those in other regions.

 

The West is an accessible program available in several formats to give instructors and students more choices and more ways to save. With the release of the 3rd edition, The West becomes an integrated program tied closely to the new MyHistoryLab.

Review:

It remains the best textbook on the topic available...It deserves to be even better known.

    - Jonathan Perry, University of South Florida

 

The questions at the beginning and questions revisited at the ends of the chapters are a great innovation--and they're helpful to the teacher. Great idea.

    -Preston Jones, John Brown University
