Details: Product Description Join the more than one million students who have used Spielvogel's texts to be successful in their Western civilization course. There's a reason why WESTERN CIVILIZATION is a best seller: it makes history come alive. The book is also loaded with extras, such as primary source features that highlight real voices from the past, plus end-of-chapter study aids to help you prepare for exams. Colorful maps and visuals, plus dramatic first-hand historical accounts, combine to bring to life the stories of the people and events that have shaped Western civilization. Review "Spielvogel�is the standard for Western Civilization." "I have been teaching Western Civilization for almost twenty years and have, at one time or another, assigned many of Spielvogel's competitors. But once I adopted Spielvogel I have consistently used it and recommended to my adjuncts that they do the same. It is the best Western Civ. text on the market." "The author strikes a very good balance between being comprehensive without drowning students in detail. � All of the chapters are strong, which is a big reason that I use the book."
