Western Civilizations, Brief 5th Edition(PDF/ePub) is a breakthrough in a long and continuing journey. After the original publication of the Full Edition in 1941, this ebook has been diligently updated by following generations of historians who have kept it at the front of the field in both pedagogical and scholarship innovation. Our newest edition carries this legacy forward, further refining the tools we have developed to encourage students—our own and yours—to include effectively the themes, sources, and challenges of history. It offers a concise and clear narrative of events that unfurled over many thousands of years, supplemented by a captivating selection of primary sources and striking images.

Simultaneously, it includes a unified program of pedagogical elements that guide students from understanding basic content to reading and evaluating historical sources and, finally, to developing a refined sense of the ways that historians rebuild the past on the basis of those sources. This outline, and a brand-new set of activities built around select sources from every chapter, assists students to read and interpret historical evidence on their own, motivating them to become active participants in the learning process and assisting them to think historically.
