Summary

This collection of primary, secondary, and visual sources for the Western Civilization survey course provides a broad introduction to the materials historians use, the interpretations historians make, and thousands of years of Western civilization. Its broad selection of documents, photographs, maps, and charts, and its full array of accompanying commentaries--drawn from a balanced spectrum of perspectives and approaches--offer valuable insight into the work of historians and provide the context that helps students understand the texts' full historical significance.

New Features

  • Several of the Visual Sources sections have been expanded with new images (including The Bayeux Tapestry and The Surrender of Breda), larger reproductions, greater use of color, and longer accompanying analytical guides to the new images that encourage students to evaluate what they are seeing as historical sources.
  • New secondary source in Chapter 7 on the expansion of Islam, by Ira Lapidus.
