Summary

WESTERN CIVILIZATION: A HISTORY OF EUROPEAN SOCIETY. VOLUME II: SINCE 1850 and its accompanying CD-ROM offer a concise overview of the social and political forces that have shaped the West. In fewer pages than other texts, Hause and Maltby's narrative presents a social history of Western civilization within the essential contexts of major military and political events. Primary sources--excerpts of original documents that flesh out the concepts covered in the narrative, tables and graphs that collect the raw social and economic data of history--bring you right into the pages of history, giving you a fascinating look at the events that have shaped today's world. Prominent subheads create a "virtual outline" that helps you quickly locate, read, and review key information. An in-text pronunciation guide and extensive end-of-chapter review materials--involve you in the story of the West.
