It is difficult for any book to try to summarize Western Civilization in 370 pages. The task is still tricky even when starting in 1500. Kirchner writes with a clear style that is easily digested. His organization is superb and consistent. Students can quickly locate a specific era and locate political, societal, scientific, religious, and cultural phenomena from that time.

There is an attempt to balance the political with other aspects. Further distinguishing this book from traditional college

I picked up this book from the library in order to familiarize myself with the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars. Yet I found myself skipping around to read about other eras that interested me, such as the Roaring Twenties, the Era of Bismarck, England's "Glorious Revolution" of 1688, and so on. This book presents overviews of every era that are very easy to absorb.
