What We Mean by the West.
McNeill, William H.
American Educator, v24 n1 p10-15,48-49 Spr 2000
Discusses how the concept of the west developed, circumstances leading to western civilization courses, and how the western European self-conception was received in America around the turn of the century and embodied in high school and college curricula. Limiting studies to the west excludes the rest of humanity. Suggests that situating the west within the totality of humankind is more appropriate. (SM)
