Description:

Western Civilization: A Brief History, 6/e, maintains a firm grounding in political history, while covering intellectual history (particularly the significance of ideas and contributions) to a greater and deeper extent than any other text for the course. Author Marvin Perry\'s accessible writing style and flexible approach make this abridged version of Western Civilization: Ideas, Politics and Society an engaging text for instructors and students of the Western Civilization survey course. The Sixth Edition incorporates current scholarship and new material on the First Crusade, the treatment of Jews, Christianity and classical humanism, and a fully revised and expanded section on "The Enlightenment and the Modern Mentality." Additional content highlights Muslim artistic and cultural contributions, the French Revolution and Reign of Terror, modern artists, the Russian Revolution, and the battles of World War II. New! Each chapter opens with a set of focus questions to aid students\' reading of the chapter, while chapter introductions provide a comprehensive overview of key themes. New! Icons in the margins of the text direct students to online maps and primary sources, as well as to the Online Study Center for practice tests, interactive activities, and other materials to help students succeed in the course. New! Instructors can access the Online Teaching Center, featuring an Instructor\'s Resource Manual, and PowerPoint maps and images, among other resources. HM Testing, Houghton Mifflin\'s test generation tool, is available separately as a CD. Perry\'s distinctive writing style helps students quickly identify the major facts (who, what, when, where and why) behind European history. His flexible approach makes it easy for instructors to incorporate a range of sources.
