Western Civilization: The Continuing Experiment - To 1715
Houghton Mifflin, Dec 1, 1998 - History - 410 pages
The Brief Edition of Western Civilization presents a strong chronological and political framework and seamlessly integrates the social and cultural forces that have shaped the western past. Two related themes are pursued throughout: 1) Europe in relation to the rest of the world and non-Western influences, and 2) power in all its senses, public and private; economic, social, cultural, and political; symbolic and real.
