The expansive collaborative efforts of Marvin Perry, Margaret Jacob, James Jacob, Myrna Chase, and Theodore H. Von Laue proves a huge success in Western Civilization: Ideas, Politics, and Society, Volume I: To 1789, ISBN 9780547147420. This text combines a user-friendly writing style with concise and thoughtfully selected content to provide students with a strong foundation in political history. The inclusion of an array of effective features including comparative timelines, visibly appealing art essays, profiles, as well as primary source boxes within in each chapter makes for an enhanced learning experience for students. Marvin Perry heads up this team of writers with plenty of expertise and experience under his belt. He is a retired Professor of History at Baruch College, City University of New York. Perry is also a veteran writer with several published works including Western Civilization: A Brief History, Sources of the Western Tradition, An Intellectual History of Modern Europe, Western Civilization: Ideas, Politics, and Society, as well as Humanities in the Western Tradition.
