This is Volume I: To 1789 of A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WESTERN WORLD, 9th Edition. Greer/Lewis's A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WESTERN WORLD, which pioneered the brief format for this subject, provides a comprehensive view of the development of Western civilization in half the pages of other texts. Not simply an abridgement of a longer book, this text offers students in survey courses a concise, lucid narrative. Each chapter provides broad coverage of political, social, cultural, and religious themes. Because the book is brief, instructors have the flexibility to tailor their instruction, and to assign supplementary materials as desired. The text's clear, balanced account of crucial political events, social and economic developments, ideas, and artistic creations make it a good match for most approaches to the course. Available in the following split options: A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WESTERN WORLD, 9th Edition ISBN: 0534642365 A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WESTERN WORLD, VOLUME I: TO 1715, 9th Edition (Parts One to Three, Chapters 1-10) ISBN: 0534642373 A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WESTERN WORLD, VOLUME II: SINCE 1300, 9th Edition (Parts Three to Five, Chapters 7-16) ISBN: 0534642381

Thomas H. Greer has studied and taught Western civilization for more than thirty-five years. He was one of the founders and developers of the highly regarded one-year humanities course at Michigan State University, completed by over 100,000 students, and served as department chairman. He is a specialist in contemporary world affairs. Among his publications are AMERICAN SOCIAL REFORM MOVEMENTS: THEIR PATTERN SINCE 1865; THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE AMERICAN DOCTRINE OF AIR POWER, 1917-1941; THE ARMY AIR FORCES IN WORLD WAR II (coauthor); WHAT ROOSEVELT THOUGHT: THE SOCIAL AND POLITICAL IDEAS OF F.D.R.; and CLASSICS OF WESTERN THOUGHT (general editor).

Gavin Lewis received his Bachelor of Arts from Oxford University and his Ph.D. from Princeton University. His research and publications include studies of central European history, Sumerian civilization, Athenian politics and religion, print and culture in the Renaissance, and the decipherment of Egyptian writing. He has over thirty years' experience teaching Western civilization to undergraduates. He is the author of CHURCH AND PARTY IN POLITICAL CATHOLICISM: THE CLERGY AND THE CHRISTIAN SOCIAL PARTY IN LOWER AUSTRIA, 1887-1907; TOMS MASARYK; and CLOSE-UPS OF THE PAST: WESTERN CIVILIZATION IN CASE STUDIES.
