An authoritative account of Western civilizations.

The Western Heritage provides the broadest possible introduction to Western civilization in a strong, clear narrative. It fosters lively debate about the West, defines how the West has interacted with other cultures, and shows how Western civilization can be used to understand global challenges today.

The text integrates social, cultural, and political history, and it provides a flexible presentation to accommodate different teaching and learning approaches.

The 11th edition is tied closely to MyHistoryLab, with icons connecting the main narrative to an array of MyHistoryLab resources, including documents, video segments, and interactive maps. The authors welcome Alison Frank, professor of history at Harvard University, to their team for this edition.
