Michael Burger's goal in this inexpensive overview is to provide a brief, historical narrative of Western civilization. Not only does its length and price separate this text from the competition, but its no-frills, uncluttered format and well-written, one-authored approach make it a valuable asset for every history student. Volume I of The Shaping of Western Civilization begins with the ancient world and ends with the Enlightenment. Unlike other textbooks that pile on dates and facts, Shaping is a more coherent and interpretive presentation. Burger?s skills as writer and synthesizer will enable students to obtain the background required to ask meaningful questions of primary sources. In addition to suggestions for further reading, this volume includes over 40 images and 14 maps.
