Summary

''The West: Encounters & Transformations Atlas Edition'' takes two new approaches to Western Civilization. First rather than looking at Western Civilization only as the history of Europe from ancient times to the present this book examines the changing nature of the West -- how the definition of the West has evolved and transformed throughout history. In the new Atlas Edition there are extra tools to help you understand the geography of the West and how that geography affected civilizations and events . Outline and four-color maps accompanied by questions help readers identify important geographical areas and think critically about the importance of geography throughout history. The maps are on perforated pages and are organized by book chapter.
