Extensively illustrated and exceptionally appealing in its narrative style, this best-selling, classic survey of the history of Western civilization - with emphasis on Western European societies - offers a short, crisp, and balanced presentation of traditional and "new" subjects, approaches, and controversies, and shows throughout how the historian goes about the craft of research, interpretation, and writing. The book is available in a variety of volume splits to accommodate different lesson lengths. It includes extracts from historical and contemporary sources and documents, discussions on "doing history," and detailed timelines.
