About this Item

"Perry makes the history of ideas as approachable as the history of events. The text shows how political, economic, and cultural aspects of Western Civilization have been shaped by a progression of ideas. A wealth of detailed maps, comparative timelines, chronologies, and chapter summaries all contribute to the effectiveness of Perry." This book has 655 pages and is illustrated throughout. The text contains approximately a dozen pages with red ink underlining, in NO way effecting the readability of the text. Bookseller Inventory # 038491
