Aiming to provide students with a keener understanding of the West through comparisons with other civilizations and cultures, this narrative history makes the past immediate, intelligible, and relevant to today's students.
Stressing three main themes (everyday life, religion, and "transforming moments") chapters focus on social, cultural, economic, and intellectual life during particular—and sometimes overlapping—periods from prehistory through 1715. The highly readable textbook augments historical context with primary source excerpts, photos, illustrations and artwork, timelines, quotes, and suggestions for further reading.
