About the Author:

Jackson J. Spielvogel is Associate Professor Emeritus of History at The Pennsylvania State University. He received his Ph.D. from The Ohio State University, where he specialized in Reformation history under Harold J. Grimm. His articles and reviews have appeared in journals such as Moreana, Journal of General Education, Catholic Historical Review, Archiv für Reformationsgeschichte, and American Historical Review. He also has contributed chapters or articles to THE SOCIAL HISTORY OF THE REFORMATION, THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE: A DICTIONARY HANDBOOK, the SIMON WIESENTHAL CENTER ANNUAL OF HOLOCAUST STUDIES, and UTOPIAN STUDIES. His work has been supported by fellowships from the Fulbright Foundation and the Foundation for Reformation Research. At Penn State, he helped inaugurate the Western Civilization course, as well as a popular course on Nazi Germany. His book HITLER AND NAZI GERMANY was published in 1987 (7th Edition, 2014). He is the author of WESTERN CIVILIZATION, first published in 1991 (10th Edition, 2017), and the coauthor (with William Duiker) of WORLD HISTORY, first published in 1994 (8th Edition, 2016). Professor Spielvogel has won five major university-wide teaching awards. During the year 1988?1989, he held the Penn State Teaching Fellowship, the university's most prestigious teaching award. In 1996, he won the Dean Arthur Ray Warnock Award for Outstanding Faculty member, and in 2000 received the Schreyer Honors College Excellence in Teaching Award.

Review:

"Of all the texts that I have read and used, Spielvogel provides the best overall summary. It is more balanced than any other text and its straightforward chronological approach is most suited to introductory students."

"I prefer Spielvogel to [other texts]. First of all, WESTERN CIVILIZATION has one author and reads better as a result. The reading experience is more 'seamless' for my students. [One text] didn't have enough detail, while [another text] had too much at times, or so my students claimed. Spielvogel has just the right balance."

"Bay College adopts Spielvogel because it is 'THE' text for Western Civilization. Other texts are adequate but Spielvogel presents an INTRODUCTORY view that covers the Core Concepts. Spielvogel is not too political, not too religious, not too economy-focused."
