Description: For survey courses in Western Civilization. A text conceived from its inception to be brief, The West takes an idea-based approach to examine Western Civilization in the broadest possible terms. By placing Western Civilization in a larger context, The West helps students to better understand current events and to re-evaluate common assumptions. Going beyond the purview of traditional texts, The West urges students to think more deeply about the nature of civilized life by consistently relating historical developments to environmental contextsboth natural ecologies and cultural legacies. Finally, The West encourages students to relate the experiences of long-vanished peoples to their own lives by posing a Larger Issuea question of broad scope or general significanceat the beginning of each chapter. Each Larger Issue provides a springboard for wide-ranging class discussions on the fundamental social and political issues in Western Civilization. The Portfolio Edition format features a concise, tradelike narrative for approximately 60% less cost to the student than a comprehensive text.
