Summary

This team of expert scholars offers students the best of all worlds by integrating social and cultural history within a chronological, political framework and by incorporating up-to-date scholarship throughout. This clear, inclusive account of the forces that have shaped the Western past focuses on two main themes: 1) power in all its senses--public and private, economic, social, cultural, political, symbolic, and real, and 2) the role of frontier and non-European regions in the historical development of the West.

A new primary source chapter highlights the "West in the World" theme, which describes the shifting boundaries and meanings of "the West" and the multiple sources of "Western Civilization."

Boxed primary-source excerpts--five per chapter--help students develop a clearer understanding of the material through cross-referencing to in-text explanations.
