Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.Western civilization and world history are often seen as different, or even mutually exclusive, routes into historical studies. This volume shows that they can be successfully linked, providing a tool to see each subject in the context of the other, identifying influences and connections. Western Civilization in World History takes up the recent debates about the merits of the well-established 'Western civ' approach versus the newer field of world history. Peter N. Stearns outlines key aspects of Western civilization - often assumed rather than analyzed - and reviews them in a global context.

"This engaging, informed, and astute book ... is at once both lively overview and measured commentary. Providing a usable framework for thinking about western civilization, the work simultaneously and zestfully covers the high points in its historiography. It is truly a masterwork because of its versatility and the erudition on which it draws." -Bonnie Smith, Rutgers University
