The most pedagogically innovative brief text—now connecting western civilizations to broader global contexts and students’ own experiences.

Western Civilizations—written by two expert teachers—is the most pedagogically innovative text for the survey course. A carefully crafted text and media program empower students to master core content, engage in historical analysis, and think critically, and the Brief Fourth Edition has been substantially updated with the latest scholarship that connects the West to global contexts, as well as new “Past and Present” features that connect historical themes to contemporary topics.
