Theodore H. Von Laue, Joseph R. Peden, Marvin Perry
With a collection of 300 sources--each accompanied by an introductory essay and review questions--this two-volume primary source reader emphasizes the history of ideas. The Sixth Edition features additional sources by and about women, as well as new attention to documents dealing with social and cultural issues. This reader works as an accompaniment to any Western Civilization course, but makes an ideal companion for Perry's "Western Civilization," 7/e, or "Western Civilization: A Brief History, "5/e. A thematic table of contents in each volume groups documents under broad categories such as "Religion," "Government and Politics," "Art, Culture, and Education," "Women," and more. These thematic groupings help instructors select sources that best fit the needs of their course and provide students with potential research and essay topics. The "How to Read Sources" prologue helps students succeed at the difficult task of reading and interpreting primary sources.Theodore H. Von Laue is the author of 'Sources of the Western Tradition: Volume I: From Ancient Times to the Enlightenment', published 2006 under ISBN 9780618473861 and ISBN 0618473866.
