- The integrated learning system includes a chapter-opening Timeline and Focus Questions, a NEW map program with geography-enhancing questions in many of the map captions, start-of-section questions followed by end-of-section "Checking In" opportunities, and a greatly expanded end-of-chapter Review section including the Summary, Chronology, and Test Yourself multiple choice and critical-thinking questions, all designed to help students succeed in the course.
- Superior coverage of religious history--from ancient times right up to the present--also includes religious groups often underrepresented in Western civilization texts, such as Catholic and Protestant Irish, Bosnian Muslims, and Orthodox Russians.
- "A New Direction" and "Learning From a Primary Source" boxes work together in every chapter to make connections for students: "A New Direction" essays show personal agency in history--each contains an account of an individual making a crucial choice that mattered, that had important consequences, and that can be used to highlight the chapter's central concerns. "Learning From a Primary Source" features carefully guide readers through primary sources and help readers analyze the documents historically through a series of numbered marginal notes, which are also designed to aid instructors seeking to integrate primary sources into their classrooms.
- A focus on gender roles, social norms, class, and family issues helps students understand things like the implications of sexuality in Sparta, citizenship in the Athenian city-state, socioeconomics in the relatively stateless early Middle Ages, what it meant to live as a man or woman during the French Revolution, and as a soldier or nurse in the trenches of World War I.
Developed by a team of authors who have spent many years making history accessible to a diverse range of readers, each chapter of MAKING EUROPE begins with clear learning objectives and timelines, and continues with an accessible narrative that uses focus questions throughout the text to help all readers understand historical concepts. The "Check-In" feature and the "Test Yourself" questions at the end of each chapter help you assess your understanding of the material. The text uses stories of ordinary people and their impact on history, and visually stunning images and maps that make learning history interesting. Available in the following split options: MAKING EUROPE, Second Edition Complete; Since 1300; Volume 1: To 1790; and Volume 2: Since 1550.
