Take a fascinating look at western civilization that reveals the diversity and richness of the human experience! Explore Duiker and Spielvogel’s brief, best-selling WESTERN CIVILIZATION: A BRIEF HISTORY and discover the common challenges and experiences that unite the human past-and inform the future. The authors weave the political, economic, social, religious, intellectual, cultural, and military aspects of history into a gripping story that is as memorable as it is instructive. In each chapter, you’ll find introductions and conclusions that give you a context within which to understand these disparate themes. And the authors include dozens of maps and primary sources--including official documents, poems, and songs--that enliven the past while introducing you to the challenges involved in interpreting history.
