Civilization in the West, Seventh Edition, Volume II Mark Kishlansky, et al. "This text is clear, well-organized, and easy for my students to follow. I have never had more satisfied students over a thirty-five year career." -Don Mohr, University of Alaska -- Anchorage"Students typically associate a history classes with being dull and dreary with an accompanying dry text.
