Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Civilization in the West, Seventh Edition, Volume C Mark Kishlansky, et al.

“This text is clear, well-organized, and easy for my students to follow. I have never had more satisfied students over a thirty-five year career.”

–Don Mohr, University of Alaska — Anchorage

“Students typically associate a history classes with being dull and dreary with an accompanying dry text. This book entices students to read the chapters not only because they are assigned but because the students are eager to read them.”

–Janilyn M. Kocher, Richland Community College

“I have seen texts that are dry, monotonous, and chocked with detail. I have seen others that present the material so lightly that it may blow away. This text is a combination of detailed information in an engaging and interesting presentation.”

–John S. Kemp, Truckee Meadows Community College

In Civilization in the West, the dramatic, changing contours of Western Civilization are explored through a compelling narrative and a rich image-based approach. In the new Seventh Edition, updated throughout, the authors blend social and political history with an exceptional map and image program to engage students and make the material more accessible.

New to this edition

  • “Image Discovery” features appear in every chapter and help students approach images as important historical texts.
  • New “West in the Wider World” essays: Chapter 18, “The Siege of Vienna;” Chapter 25, “Babylon Discovered;” and Chapter 29, “Mahatma Gandhi’s Legacy.”
  • New primary source documents: Chapter 14 now includes “The Heart and Stomach of a King,” in which Queen Elizabeth rallies her subjects to oppose the invasion of English by the Spanish Armada; Chapter 19 now contains excerpts from Voltaire’s great comic novel, Candide; the Treaty of Versailles is excerpted in Chapter 26; and Chapter 30 now includes both Vaclav Havel’s address to Czechoslovakia from January 1, 1990 and a press release from London Mayor Ken Livingstone regarding his commitment, and that of 21 other mayors from major cities around the world, to reducing greenhouse gases.
  • An expanded Glossary contains over 60 new key terms.

This book was for a course in college. I received the book in plenty of time to read it before the class assignment. The quality was as advertised.
