This affordable THOMSON ADVANTAGE BOOKS version of WESTERN CIVILIZATION: A HISTORY OF EUROPEAN SOCIETY, COMPACT EDITION offers 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.
