The West: Encounters and Transformations examines the changing nature of Western civilization, helping you understand how the definition of the West has both evolved and been transformed throughout history. Focusing on the central theme of cultural encounters, authors Brian Levack, Edward Muir and Meredith Veldman explain how the West originated and developed through a continuous process of inclusion and exclusion resulting from a series of encounters among and within different groups.
The 5th Edition offers coverage of Putin's Russia as well as expanded discussions of both the Islamist challenge to the West and the implications of the European debt crisis for the EU. New chronologies listing the events relating to particular topics are helpful for purposes of review.
