Michael Burger's goal in this inexpensive overview is to provide a brief, historical narrative of Western civilization. Not only does its length and price separate this text from the competition, but its no-frills, uncluttered format and well-written, one-authored approach make it a valuable asset for every history student. The Shaping of Western Civilization begins with the ancient Near East and ends with globalization. Unlike other textbooks that pile on dates and facts, Shaping is a more coherent and interpretive presentation. Burger's skills as writer and synthesizer will enable students to obtain the background required to ask meaningful questions of primary sources. In addition to suggestions for further reading, this overview includes over 50 images and 22 maps.

Courses in Western Civilization I and II; historiography courses primarily European. Now that almost all sources are available on the web, a new kind of source book is needed. Older source books cannot compete with the free (and easily chosen) sources on the web. This book really makes students think through problems. As a professor for over 20 years, the author has used and discarded most source books that "bundle" sources with a short intro and a few questions. This book integrates sources within thematic chapters.
