- Marvin Perry's WESTERN CIVILIZATION is the the premier text to use for those interested in teaching intellectual history.
- Each chapter has an integrated excerpt of a primary source--with an introductory essay and questions for analysis--to help students interpret and analyze primary source documents.
- Five full-color illustrated art essays appear throughout the book to help students interpret and analyze visual sources.
WESTERN CIVILIZATION, Tenth Edition, maintains a firm grounding in political history, while covering intellectual history (particularly the significance of ideas and contributions) to greater and deeper extent than any other text for the course. Known for its accessible writing style, this text appeals to students and instructors alike for its brevity, clarity, and careful selection of content including its enhanced focus on religion and philosophy. Updated with more recent scholarship, the Tenth edition retains many popular features, including comparative timelines, full-color art essays, profiles, and primary source boxes in each chapter. New technology resources (available separately), including CourseMate with interactive eBook, make learning more engaging and bring history concepts to life.
