Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0395959357, Paperback)

This text focuses on the Western intellectual tradition, presenting the history of Western ideas within a chronology of political history. Its distinctive writing style combines simplicity of presentation with a dramatic narrative, achieved through a selective choice of content and clear explanations of major themes. The book is relatively brief and less expensive than most comparable texts.

Comparative timelines that detail the relationship between the political and intellectual history of the West appear at the end of each Part. A full-color map accompanied by an essay on physical geography appears at the beginning of each volume to help students orient themselves to the European landscape.
