9781111837204: Western Civilization: A Brief History, Volume I: To 1789

WESTERN CIVILIZATION: A BRIEF HISTORY, Tenth Edition, maintains a firm grounding in political history, while covering intellectual history (particularly the significance of ideas and contributions) to a greater and deeper extent than any other text for the course. Author Marvin Perry's accessible writing style and flexible approach make this abridged version of WESTERN CIVILIZATION: IDEAS, POLITICS, AND SOCIETY an engaging Western Civilization survey text. Updated with more recent scholarship, the Tenth Edition retains many popular features, including comparative timelines, full-color art essays, and primary source boxes in each chapter. New technology resources (available separately), including CourseMate with interactive eBook, make learning more engaging and bring history concepts to life.
