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.

Too wordy, to much insignificant detail, and because of the redundancy, it's a very boring, very difficult read! I hope no professors use this in the future!

I bought this to study for the Western Civilization II CLEP test. It was well worth it. It's somewhat compact but covers a lot detail of what I needed to know on the test. Also, not nearly as dry as some other history text books. It included lots of pictures and maps and little side paragraphs to help you get an idea of the how the current event you were reading about related to the other things going on in the world at the time. I learned a lot from this book, and also the previous book covering earlier history in Volume I. One other neat thing is that they have a link to a website where you can study this material and take chapter tests.

I read a little each night, and feel she is taking me on a journey that has continuity. Pictures and maps add great value. One of my favorite history books, I have learned a great deal, compliments other history reading I do. I intend to read it again, expect to have a solid framework from a West perspective.

My daughter used this book to study for the AP European History Exam. We don't have a program of AP in our schools here so she did it all on her own with on-line self tests and additional material. This book was beat up as she used and studied from it everywhere she went. I recommend a hard bound book if your kid is serious. She did get a 5 for her effort.

Great book, I passed the course. I want to keep this book.

I bought this book to help with a European History from 1500 to present course that did not require any sort of history textbook; I'm not very good at history and so I wanted a book to help me keep track of what was going on at the time period. I think Hunt is very easy to read and presents things in a logical manner. But I don't think that this book was a s thorough as it could have been and I often would look to other reference materials when I wanted more on a topic.

The bottom line is that Hunt gives a great overview without going too far into the details of what was going on in the time period.

Clean and good condition.
This book is well-written and easy to understand. It came with few to no markings or highlights. I was not damaged or torn either.
