Overview

For History of Western Civilization courses

Explore the changing nature of the West
The West: Encounters and Transformations examines the changing nature of Western civilization — helping students to 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 Fifth Edition offers updated and revised content to better detail the political, social, religious, and cultural history of the regions that have been, at one time or another, considered part of the West.
