Origins of the Modern West: Essays and Sources in Renaissance & Early Modern European History
This book is designed to accompany the nationally televised PBS series of six films, entitled THE RENAISSANCE. For instructors using the films, the text will be indispensable, as there is no alternative available so specifically geared to their needs. The book integrates the film series into a history course in a way that makes the subject comprehensible within a broad context. In addition to the historical chapters and the chronological overview, all related to the subjects of the film, the book includes illustrations, maps, and primary documents which can be used for teaching.
