9780130272836: The Western Heritage, the:Volume B, 1300-1815

A core text for introductory-level survey courses in Western Civilization and European History and Civilization.

Written by leading scholars in the field, this authoritative, time-honored text presents a strong, clear narrative account of the central developments in Western history with a focus on several key themes—the development of political freedom and constitutional government; the shifting relations among religion, society, and the state; the development of science and technology and their impact on thought and social institutions; and the major religious and intellectual currents that have shaped Western culture.
