Summary: Carefully edited and rewritten to retain the key coverage of the original text, Western Civilization: The Continuing Experiment, Brief, presents a strong chronological and political framework and seamlessly integrates the social and cultural forces that have shaped the western past and continue to inform "the continuing experiment." Two related main themes are pursued throughout: 1) Europe in relation to the rest of the world and non-Western influenc
es, and 2) power in all its senses--public and private, economic, social, cultural, political, symbolic, and real.

"Questions and Ideas to Consider," following each chapter-opening vignette, helps students focus on important issues.

"West in the World" theme explores the roles of the frontier and non-European regions, revealing and explaining the shifting boundaries and meanings of "the West."

"Encounters" boxes are a primary source feature that highlights the West in the World theme, engaging the student in a lively discussion of how the West influenced and was influenced by the non-West.
