Overview

VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY shows that history is made up of the stories of people. Each chapter centers on a traveler's account that highlights the authors' main theme, the constant movement of people, goods, and ideas. The travelers include merchants, poets, rulers, explorers, soldiers, missionaries, and scholars, and their voyages provide a framework for each chapter that captures students' interest and enthusiasm. Special features help students make connections across chapters, societies, and time periods as they learn about the people, places, and events crucial to understanding world history and its global context. Also included: the MindTap® online learning experience, with an interactive map application. Split options available.
