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).

Review:

"This is the best one-volume survey of Western history that I know of. Unlike most such texts, it is truly written on the college level. It doesn't talk down to its readers, though it subtly gives them the background they need."

"I believe its most obvious special strength is its organization. The clear explanations of both political/diplomatic and cultural/intellectual developments woven into the narrative structure used makes the text readable and accessible for students."

"I think this book is very readable and well organized. It has many important organizational advantages. It attempts to take a balanced view of various cultural and religious issues. I am very impressed with the overall quality of the text book. I will recommend that the rest of the committee look at this as an alternative to the Perry book."

"The timelines are very appealing and strikingly laid out. The overviews at the beginning of each chapter are nicely presented and do a fine job of tying the chapter's themes together. The impact of technology and science is consistently well explained, and art and music are integrated nicely."

"This text is set apart from comparable competing texts by the sophistication of its narrative. Most comparable texts water down the content and simplify the vocabulary. This text presents a quality narrative that matches that of much longer texts."
