Description

Sources of the West is a collection of excerpts from primary source documents designed to supplement textbooks and lectures in the teaching of Western Civilization. These documents are the source material historians use to construct their accounts and interpretations of history. As they examine these source materials, students learn to think historically - to examine the ideas of others, to understand past experiences on others' terms, to recognize other points of view.
