Editorial Reviews

Review

"I enjoyed every page and could hardly put it down."—Patricia Ali, Morris College

"I am impressed by the cultural encounters approach that this textbook uses. Showing the various forces of history will help students understand how everything in history meshes together into a giant story, instead of just being a jumble of facts."—Leonard Curtis, Mississippi College

"The authors are absolutely right-on when they argue that the west is an idea shaped by cultural encounters...this is the only way that western civilization courses can be taught in the 21st century."—Bryan Ganaway, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

"The author(s) have done an outstanding job of writing a text that is...lucid...and comprehensive."—Sharon L. Arnoult, Midwestern State University

"Too many texts are afraid to be interesting, engaging or to tell a good story...this textbook provides comprehensive coverage of events and also tells some good stories, nice to see that this can be done in a textbook today. This is the kind of textbook that helps make a course interesting, helping professors who have trouble being lively and supporting those who try to engage students with good stories based in different methods, countries, and areas of interest."—Patrick Holt, Fordham University

"The writing style is friendly, warm, and persuasive. Students will want to read these chapters and continue reading them." —Theodore M. Kluz, Troy State University

"Finally, a textbook for Western civilization courses that uses modern, clear language without distorting the record of the past, that combines forceful interpretation with the 'facts' and that marries brevity to faithfulness to history! The 'encounters' theme is a most effective pedagogical method, and is in keeping with the approach of the West being a cultural construct. This is an innovative approach, appropriate for today's students living in our global world."—Arthur H. Auten, University of Hartford --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

The West: Encounters and Transformations, Second Edition, Volume I

Brian Levack

 

With 32 additional maps, The West: Encounters and Transformations, Second Edition, Atlas Edition, helps students with geography, one of the most difficult aspects of Western Civilization courses for many. Four-color and outline maps accompanied by review questions call on students to identify important geographical areas and think critically about the connection between geography and historical events. The maps are on perforated pages and are organized by chapter so that they can be easily assigned and collected.

 

Here is a sample of the maps included:

 

Greece and Greek Colonies of the World, ca. 431 BCE

The Career of Julius Caesar

The Expansion of Islam in the 7th and 8th Centuries

The Expansion of the Ottoman Empire

Trade Routes to Asia

Europe under Absolute Monarchy, 1715

 

 

A complete listing of the maps appears at the front of this book.

 

 

Do you want more maps? All of the maps in this text — plus many more at no additional cost–can be found on Longman’s exclusive website, www.MyHistoryLab.com.

 

MyHistoryLab is offered at no additional cost when bundled with this text.

 

MyHistoryLab also contains a myriad of other resources such as images, an electronic version of the textbook, student assessment tests, fifty of the most commonly assigned books in history, and much more.

Bought this for my Humanities I class. It has helped me understand some of the events we talk about in class and the geography of the regions we're studying.
