Thesucceeding 10 chapters follow the progression of the television series, expanding on the material covered in the programs and providing cross-references for textbook assignments. The final unit sums up the main points presented in the television course and reviews students' knowledge. Each chapterof the study guide begins with a brief unit summary, followed by a list of critical thinking questions that address the learning objectives and an overview that integrates the program with the readings.

Editorial Reviews

"Very thorough, very useful compilation of materials. Dedicated students will find it indispensable. It's a combination of many things in one--most complete--a total road-map of what, where, when and why, making the programs and readings especially meaningful."--Charles F. Gruber, MarshallUniversity
