"I have been teaching Western Civilization for almost twenty years and have, at one time or another, assigned many of Spielvogel's competitors. But once I adopted Spielvogel I have consistently used it and recommended to my adjuncts that they do the same. It is the best Western Civ. text on the market."
"Spielvogel...is the standard for Western Civilization."
"The author strikes a very good balance between being comprehensive without drowning students in detail. ... All of the chapters are strong, which is a big reason that I use the book."
