A History of Western Society examines Western civilization through the lives of ordinary people as well as historical figures, using an engaging, lively writing style to capture student interest. The authors pay careful attention to political and cultural phenomena and provide a balanced account of Western history. Merry Wiesner and Clare Crowston are new authors to this edition--both scholars of women and gender--who do an excellent job of revising and improving the treatment of gender throughout the text.
