Lynn Hunt, Thomas R. Martin, Bonnie G. Smith, Barbara H. Rosenwein, R. Po-chia Hsia, "The Making of the West: Peoples and Cultures, Volume 1: To 1740"
English | 2009 | 681 Pages | ISBN: 0312452950 | PDF | 51 MB

A team of renowned scholar-teachers created The Making of the West to address three of the biggest challenges teachers of western civilization face — demonstrating how the West has been an evolving entity shaped by global influences; conveying the dynamic interaction of social, political, cultural, and economic history in shaping events over time; and revealing the historical roots of developments in today’s world. Through a ground-breaking chronological synthesis, the narrative deftly weaves together the main events, people, and themes of a specific time, thus providing a balanced, easy-to-follow story line. New aids to guide student reading and enhancements to the book’s organization bring the essence of western history to the fore in the most accessible edition yet.
