Additional Book Details

This successful Western history version of the popular Discovering series provides a broad range of both visual and written sources. The unique pedagogical framework includes The Problem, Sources and Method, The Evidence, Questions to Consider, and Epilogue and Evaluation sections in each chapter. This structure promotes critical thinking, sharpens analytical skills, and builds student interest in the subject matter. DISCOVERING THE WESTERN PAST: A LOOK AT THE EVIDENCE, Volume I: To 1789, Seventh Edition, emphasizes historical study as interpretation rather than memorization of data, with actual documents and artifacts from which students develop answers to historical questions-and learn to think like historians. The new edition includes two new chapters, which explore health and disease in the Greek World as well as the activities of monarchs in Portugal, Castile, and Aragon who were interested in expanding their territories and influence in 1450-1540.
