Western Civilizations: Their History & Their Culture, Vol. 1: Pre-History to the Present (v. 1)
by Judith Coffin
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
Edition: 16th - 2008
Used successfully by over one million students, Western Civilizations is renowned for its balanced presentation, clear prose, and exceptional treatment of the West in a global context.Building on these strengths, Coffin and Stacey have delivered a new, carefully revised edition that draws upon their own practical teaching experience while integrating new and emerging research in the field. In addition, the Sixteenth Edition includes new "Transformations" sections that ask students to reflect on major turning points in history (such as the Black Death or the emergence of the Abolition movement). Also new to this edition are document questions that help students make connections between primary and secondary materials.
