Features and Benefits

Strong narrative

The exceptionally clear narrative integrates social and cultural history into a strong political framework and reinforces themes that are fundamental to Western civilization. This program emphasizes the analysis of primary sources—supported by Document-Based Questions (DBQs) provided throughout the text.

  • Emphasis on analysis of primary sources—supported by Document-Based Questions (DBQs) provided throughout the text. 
  • In each chapter, there are three to four primary sources that illuminate the time, events, or people being discussed in the chapter. 
  • An outline, learning objectives, and an introduction are included at the beginning of each chapter. Together these features provide a succinct overview of each chapter and a road map for study and review. 
  • Visual images embedded throughout the text provide as much insight into European history as the written word. Within photographs and pieces of fine art lies emotional and historical meaning.
