Review:

"A History of Western Society has been one of the very best textbooks available for the Western civilization survey course. Written in an engaging style, the text is accessible for undergraduates. The authors have utilized the most recent research and managed to keep the text relevant, not only with changes in our historical knowledge, but with an understanding of dimensions of global history and the way in which the West has impacted it, and been impacted by it."  - Roy G. Koepp, University of Nebraska at Kearney, USA
