Western Civilization: A Global and Comparative Approach: Volume I: To 1715, Volume 1

Front Cover
Routledge, Dec 18, 2014 - History - 496 pages
Featuring the one author, one voice approach, this text is ideal for instructors who do not wish to neglect the importance of non-Western perspectives on the study of the past. The book is a brief, affordable presentation providing a coherent examination of the past from ancient times to the present. Religion, everyday life, and transforming moments are the three themes employed to help make the past interesting, intelligible, and relevant to contemporary society.
