Western Civilization: A History of European Society (repost)

Steven C. Hause, William Maltby, "Western Civilization: A History of European Society"
2 edition | English | 2004-07-30 | ISBN: 053462118X | 683 pages | PDF | 14,8 mb

Completely revised with your students' success in mind, WESTERN CIVILIZATION: A HISTORY OF EUROPEAN SOCIETY offers a concise overview of the social and political forces that have shaped the West. In fewer pages than other texts, Hause and Maltby's narrative presents a social history of Western civilization within the essential contexts of major military and political events. The text's strong reliance on primary sources – excerpts of original documents that flesh out the concepts covered in the narrative, tables and graphs that collect the raw social and economic data of history – brings the reader right into the pages of history, giving them a fascinating look at the events that have shaped the world in which they live.

To help students truly grasp history and succeed in the course, extensive pedagogical support complements Hause and Maltby's WESTERN CIVILIZATION. Within the text, a colorful new design and prominent subheads create a "virtual outline" that lets students quickly locate, read, and review key information. Captivating pedagogy – an in-text pronunciation guide, critical thinking questions built right into the captions of the tables and graphs, and extensive end-of-chapter review materials – involves students in the story of the West by getting them to engage with it.
