9780134056715: Civilization in the West

Civilization in the West blends social and political history into a fascinating narrative that brings history to life.

The authors tell a compelling story of Western Civilization that is enhanced by an image-based approach. Pictorial chapter openers draw students in by illustrating a dominant theme of the chapter and exploring the dramatic impression each image makes in reinforcing that theme. The presentation of geography guides students around the changing contours of the West through both standard maps and Geographic Tours of Europe. Discovering Western Civilization Online end-of-chapter website URLs make this the first Western Civilization book to date to include these resources.
