HST 104 | Western Civilization II: Find Books

Covers the 17th century through the twentieth, including the Cold War and Decolonization. Considers political, social, economic, cultural, religious, and intellectual development of modern Europe and the West since 1648.

LC Call Numbers: History

You will find most books on pre-Enlgihtenment European history in the C and D ranges on the second floor of the library. The 'C' class covers general subjects, including the history of civilization, archaeology, and biography. The 'D' class encompasses world history with sub-divisions by region (excluding the Americas). History lends itself to a wide insterdisciplinary range, however, so your research may take you into other areas as well.
