Western Civilization: Beyond Boundaries
Cengage Learning, Jan 10, 2007 - History - 1088 pages
Western Civilization, 5/e, is distinguished for its wider definition of Europe that includes Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, and European frontiers. Recognizing that factors outside the continent affected European history, the authors highlight Europe's place in the world throughout the narrative and in the primary source feature, The Global Record. Carefully revised and edited for greater accessibility, the Fifth Edition incorporates new pedagogical features such as focus questions, key terms, and section summaries to better support students of western civilization. The reconceived narrative and streamlined organization, featuring smaller, more cohesive learning units, lend to greater ease of use for both students and instructors.

It's an okay book. I found it a bit easy to read (but this would be easy/easier to read for people would are interested in history or of the topics that the book covers. I found the information a bit limited though, because it seems that the authors only discuss the basics of the events in history, rather than going into depth, such as mentioning important figures of wars (for instance). This book would be good if you wanted to know the basics of history, rather than knowing the details.
