9780618312924: Discovering the Western Past: A Look at the Evidence, Volume I: To 1789

This successful western history version of the popular Discovering series provides a broad range of both visual and written sources within a unique pedagogical framework. Its unique structure promotes critical thinking, sharpens analytical skills, and builds student interest in the subject matter. The text emphasizes historical study as interpretation rather than memorization of data, with actual documents and artifacts from which students develop answers to historical questions.
