The Western Experience: Volume A: Antiquity and the Middle Ages with Other [Paperback]

Mortimer Chambers , Barbara Hanawalt , Theodore K. Rabb

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

17 Mar 2006
The Western Experience offers a thorough, analytical overview of Western civilization, giving students an introduction to the major achievements in Western thought, art, and science--as well as the social, political, and economic context for understanding those developments. To help readers develop their reasoning and writing skills, each chapter is constructed to serve as an example of a historical essay in which a historical problem is presented, and arguments are developed using historical evidence. Available in a single volume as well as two-volume and three-volume formats, the ninth edition features many improvements, including the work of Lisa Tiersten in her new chapter on nineteenth-century empires.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the whole package 10 Feb 2010

I ordered this book rather than other because I wanted the CD-rom study guide as well. It did not come with the book. And the book is not in good condition either. It is real tattered. The description was very misleading!
