Description: Courses in Western Civilization I and II;nbsp;historiography coursesnbsp;primarily European. nbsp; Now that almost all sources are available on the web, a new kind of source book is needed.nbsp;nbsp;Older source books cannot compete with the free (and easily chosen) sources on the web.nbsp; This book really makes students think through problems.nbsp; As a professor for over 20 years,nbsp;the author hasnbsp;used and discarded most source books that "bundle" sources with a short intro and a few questions.nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;This book integrates sources within thematic chapters.
