Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0673992268, Hardcover)

This text recounts the human story of western civilization. The second edition, it features greater thematic unity and a stronger chronological framework while it continues to trace the social, political and intellectual issues that have shaped civilization. New material includes enhanced coverage of religion and the Crusades, an updated look at Columbus, a separate section on the Enlightenment and a revised discussion of imperialism during the late 19th century. Primary source excerpts have been added in each chapter, while the chapter-openers ,"Special Feature" essays and "Tours of Europe" have been maintained from the first edition.
