Now in its Third Edition, Perspectives from the Past has been extensively revised to be the ideal companion to Western Civilizations.

The breadth and depth of this reader remain unmatched, and the readings have been reorganized to mirror the chapter structure of Western Civilizations. Several documents related to the new theme of Empire and topics like gender and Islam are included with this revision.
