This two-volume reader contains a treasury of readings selected from the civilizations of the world. The 30 primary source selections in each volume (15 from the East, 15 from the West) include such discourse types as fiction, drama, poetry, philosophical, religions, political, speeches, and social commentary. Each volume is arranged chronologically into three parts: each part containing ten sections (five Eastern, five Western). Five themes (love, death, the good life, war and peace, and virtue and the individual) are represented in each part, offering instructors the option of assigning readings by theme rather than chronology.
