"Waddy offers a comprehensive yet accessible text, lucidly written, combining historical interpretation and intriguing facts to engage students. Discussion questions for each chapter serve to focus attention for review, but also serve as invitation to creative and critical reflection by students."
Robert F. Goeckel, Professor of Political Science and International Relations, SUNY College at Geneseo
"Waddy grabs the reader's attention and never relinquishes it. Written in accessible and witty prose, his text provides a succinct comparative analysis of European communities and their Mediterranean forbearers. Cogent insights on the relevance of the past for the present remind one why history is so essential-why it remains at the core of the liberal arts. The Essential Guide to Western Civilization is a tour de force."
W. Brian Newsome, Professor of History, Elizabethtown College
