An outstanding companion reader

This primary source collection provides a diverse selection of sources to accompany each chapter of A History of Western Society, Tenth Edition. Each chapter contains at least five sources that present history from the viewpoints of well-known and ordinary individuals alike. Now with 19 visual sources and 30% more documents, this edition offers great breadth and depth in its sources. To foster lively comparative debates, a new “Viewpoints” feature in each chapter highlights two or three documents that address the same topic from different perspectives.
Sources of Western Society has an impressive selection of documents that do a good job of illustrating the themes stressed in the chapter. Its brief introductions provide sufficient context without overwhelming the documents themselves. The explanatory footnotes clarify important points that novice readers would otherwise miss.”
