An Eighth Day View:
A social history within a political and cultural framework, The West in the World looks at the development of western civilization within the context of the rest of the world. Rather than treating the evolution of western civilization as an isolated event, Sherman and Salisbury examine how the west evolved in time with--and often, as a response to--the events that shaped civilization around the globe. In addition to setting the history of western civilization in context, this groundbreaking new text distinguishes itself from standard survey texts by being the first to fully interate viusal history with traditional narrative style. Readers glimpse the true craft of the historian through integrated discussion of the visual program in the book; throughout the text, the authors address how the paintings, sculpures and other art of the times serve as primary sources in informing the reader about that period in history.
