The Core Curriculum

A Source Book

Event Date: 

The efforts to create a unique secondary source for the Contemporary Civilizations course culminates in the publication of "Introduction to Contemporary Civilization in the West: A Source Book" in 1946. Previous efforts to put together a source book had failed over disagreements amongst faculty about what to include. Even as the book becomes available, many faculty are uncomfortable with texts included which they feel are best covered by Humanities A.
