Sources of Western Society, Volume I: From Antiquity to the Enlightenment
This two-volume primary source collection provides a diverse selection of documents to accompany each chapter of A History of Western Society, Ninth Edition, and Western Society: A Brief History, First Edition. Each chapter contains at least four written sources that present history from the perspectives of well-known figures and ordinary individuals alike. Chapter introductions offer an overview of the period under discussion, and document headnotes and reading and discussion questions encourage student understanding. Each chapter concludes with a list of comparative questions that ask students to draw connections between sources and across time.
