Primary Sources Western Civilization, Volume 2 for Primary Sources Western Civilization, Volume 2

New or Used: $108.14
Courses in Western Civilization I and II; historiography courses primarily European. Now that almost all sources are available on the web, a new kind of source book is needed. Older source books cannot compete with the free (and easily chosen) sources on the web. This book really makes students think through problems. As a professor for over 20 years, the author has used and discarded most source books that "bundle" sources with a short intro and a few questions. This book integrates sources within thematic chapters.
