Overview


This is Volume I: To 1715 of WESTERN CIVILIZATION: A BRIEF HISTORY, Third Edition. This brief, best-selling Western civilization text has helped thousands of students learn about the world they live in by exploring the story of its past. Jack Spielvogel's engaging, chronological narrative weaves the political, economic, social, religious, intellectual, cultural, and military aspects of history into a gripping story that is as memorable as it is instructive. Each chapter offers a substantial introduction and conclusion that sparks students' imaginations by giving them a context within which to understand these disparate themes. And while the single-author narrative makes it easy for students to follow the story of Western civilization, Spielvogel has included dozens of maps and primary sources--including official documents, poems, and songs--that enliven the past while introducing students to the challenges involved in interpreting history. This edition includes substantial new material on world history to show students the impact of other parts of the world on Western civilization and is now the BRIEFEST of the leading brief Western civilization texts. Available in the following split options: WESTERN CIVILIZATION: A BRIEF HISTORY, Third Edition (Chapters 1-29), ISBN: 0-534-62721-8; WESTERN CIVILIZATION: A BRIEF HISTORY, Volume I: To 1715, Third Edition (Chapters 1-16), ISBN: 0-534-62722-6; WESTERN CIVILIZATION: A BRIEF HISTORY, Volume II: Since 1500, Third Edition (Chapters 13-29), ISBN: 0-534-62723-4.
