"Understanding our increasingly globalized and interconnected world requires students to make comparisons-across time and between peoples, cultures, regions, and countries. The story of Western Civilization remains vital and fascinating, and Ken Campbell makes it vastly more relevant and enlightening by partially breaching the artificial barriers between the Western Civ, United States, and world history surveys. Insightful comparisons throughout and the inclusion of one or more well-chosen non-European sources per chapter help students see how all are interrelated and mutually influencing. Campbell's introductions and questions are truly illuminating. This is an excellent sourcebook." --Jonathan Daly, Professor of History, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA

"This volume offers a broad and well-chosen selection of primary source materials, placing the development of western civilization firmly within the context of global history. Ranging from familiar treatises to more idiosyncratic popular works, the textual and visual sources presented here provide comprehensive geographic and thematic coverage, with a chronological scope that extends into the early twenty-first century. Well-organized, with each chapter providing an accessible and insightful introductory overview, this volume should enable students to engage with the past in new and provocative ways." --Derek Hastings, Oakland University, USA

"Western Civilization in a Global Context provides a much needed resource for teachers who recognize that explaining the world today requires explaining the Western past - which can only be done in global context. That this book achieves." --Stephen Balch, Texas Tech University, USA
