Overview

This successful Western history version of the popular Discovering series provides a broad range of both visual and written sources. The unique pedagogical framework includes The Problem, Sources and Method, The Evidence, Questions to Consider, and Epilogue and Evaluation sections in each chapter. This structure promotes critical thinking, sharpens analytical skills, and builds student interest in the subject matter. DISCOVERING THE WESTERN PAST: A LOOK AT THE EVIDENCE, Volume II: Since 1500, Seventh Edition, emphasizes historical study as interpretation rather than memorization of data, with actual documents and artifacts from which students develop answers to historical questions—and learn to think like historians. Significantly revised, this edition includes four new chapters: "Royal Power and Overseas Expansion, 1450-1540" (Ch. 2); "Motherhood, Nationalism, and Women's Political Role, 1848-1940" (Ch. 10); "Cold War Cultures: Visions of the 'Good Life' in East and West" (Ch. 13); and "Europe and the Iraq War" (Ch. 14).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I like this text a lot. It engages the students because they are forced to think for themselves about how to interpret the sources."

"Strengths of this text include the sheer variety of sources, and their contrast; this forces students to make history from sources, just as historians do."
