The University of Chicago Readings in Western Civilization (nine volumes) makes available to students and teachers a unique selection of primary documents, many in new translations. These readings, prepared for the highly praised Western civilization sequence at the University of Chicago, were chosen by an outstanding group of scholars whose experience teaching that course spans almost four decades. Each volume includes rarely anthologized selections as well as standard, more familiar texts; a bibliography of recommended parallel readings; and introductions providing background for the selections. Beginning with Periclean Athens and concluding with twentieth-century Europe, these source materials enable teachers and students to explore a variety of critical approaches to important events and themes in Western history.
Individual volumes provide essential background reading for courses covering specific eras and periods. The complete nine-volume series is ideal for general courses in history and Western civilization sequences.

I don't know what my fellow reviewer means by saying that Robespierre's Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen from 1793 is missing. This famous declaration, framed and hanging on the wall of the Committee of Public Safety right through Robespierre's downfall, was drafted by the Assembly in August 1789, before Robespierre came to Paris and entered politics. One omission is the Law of 14 Frimaire (Dec 4) 1793, giving the Reign of Terror a constitutional basis. But this is a very long affair, and incidentally, primarily written by fellow committee member Billaud-Varenne.
