The Making of the West offers a geographically and culturally expansive conception of the West that prepares students to understand today’s globalized world. Its integrated chronological narrative makes the impact of historical developments clear by highlighting the interconnections among the politics, people, and ideas of a specific period. From the book’s conception, the authors — a team of renowned scholars and expert teachers — have worked to provide a new vision of the West based on cutting-edge scholarship. The narrative — enhanced by a rich and informative art and map program — distills the latest research and consistently treats topics underserved in other books: the West in global perspective, high and popular art and culture, and gender.
