This is Volume II: Since 1300 of A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WESTERN WORLD, 9th Edition. Greer/Lewis's A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WESTERN WORLD, which pioneered the brief format for this subject, provides a comprehensive view of the development of Western civilization in half the pages of other texts. Not simply an abridgement of a longer book, this text offers students in survey courses a concise, lucid narrative. Each chapter provides broad coverage of political, social, cultural, and religious themes. Because the book is brief, instructors have the flexibility to tailor their instruction, and to assign supplementary materials as desired. The text's clear, balanced account of crucial political events, social and economic developments, ideas, and artistic creations make it a good match for most approaches to the course.Available in the following split options:A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WESTERN WORLD, 9th EditionISBN: 0534642365 A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WESTERN WORLD, VOLUME I: TO 1789, 9th Edition (Parts One to Three, Chapters 1-10)ISBN: 0534642373A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WESTERN WORLD, VOLUME II: SINCE 1300, 9th Edition (Parts Three to Five, Chapters 7-16)ISBN: 0534642381.
