Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Sources of the West: Readings in Western Civilization,
Seventh Edition, Volume I
Mark Kishlansky, Harvard University

“The Sources of the West has the best collection of documents that I have found.”

–Pete Rottier, Cleveland State University

“Very useful, clear, and concise.”

Ann Lester, University of Colorado, Boulder

By reading the voices of the past, students can connect them to the present, learn to understand and respect other cultures, and think critically about history. Sources of the West presents a well-balanced selection of readings that integrate coverage of social, economic, religious, and cultural history within a traditional political framework. Long enough to give students a feel for the meaning of the document but short enough to maintain student interest and act as supplemental material, these sources raise significant issues for classroom discussions or lectures.

This reader also includes an introductory essay, “How to Read a Document,” which provides students with a road map for approaching and analyzing each selection. The essay explains the types and levels of questions students need to ask and answer in order to understand and interpret each document.

New Documents include:

  • Plutarch, The Life of Alexander
  • Ibn Ishaq, The Life of Muhammad
  • Francis Xavier, Letter from India
  • The English Bill of Rights

My order was shipped and arrived very quickly which I was pleased with. The book was listed as in very good condition which is why I paid extra and purchased this one. However, it has quite a bit of writing, pen highlighting, there are stickers all over the book and the cover is dirty. Other than that I was happy with this seller and would have like give them an extra half star, I would buy from them again.
