Overview

A Brief History of Western Civilization: The Unfinished Legacy, Fifth Edition

Mark Kishlansky / Patrick Geary / Patricia O’Brien

Balanced in coverage and beautifully written, A Brief History of Western Civilization explores everyday occurrences and ordinary people as well as major events and powerful elites. Noted for its exceptional visual program of images and maps, the book is designed specifically to engage students actively in the study of the West.

Features of the Fifth Edition

  • Three new “The Visual Record” pictorial chapter openers are included. All openers contain a section entitled “Looking Ahead” that links the subject of the opener to the major topics and themes of the chapter.
  • New! Key terms and a glossary have been added to alert students to important concepts and provide them with a reference tool as they read the text.
