Summary

Civilization Past and Present, Concise Version, is a carefully honed version of the best-selling Civilization Past and Present, Ninth Edition. It treats the development and growth of civilization not as a unique European experience but as a global one through which all the great culture systems have interacted to produce the present-day world. This new text includes all the elements of history-social, economic, political, military, religious, aesthetic, legal, and technological-to illustrate that global interaction.
