VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY, BRIEF EDITION, Second Edition, masterfully uses the theme of movement−the journeys of peoples, ideas, and goods−to help students make sense of the huge range of people, places, and events throughout history. Each chapter is framed around the story of a person who traveled within the time period and region under discussion. Students can practice being critical readers by evaluating the traveler’s observations and attitudes. A primary source feature, “Movement of Ideas,” helps students develop the core skill of analyzing sources by allowing them to compare multiple explanations of significant ideas. This brief text meets the needs of instructors who want a lively narrative style without sacrificing the themes and pedagogy that make world history understandable to students; it is also ideal for instructors who want to supplement a text with many primary sources. Available in the following options: VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY, BRIEF EDITION, 2nd Edition (Chapters 1−32); Volume I: To 1600 (Chapters 1−16); Volume II: Since 1500 (Chapters 15−32).
- At the end of every chapter, the authors now make broad connections and offer historical context for the many themes and regions discussed in the chapter. This enhancement addresses professors’ desire for global connections to be more overt for their students, thereby making their comprehension of global history more manageable.
- At the suggestion of reviewers, six travelers have been replaced to freshen the narrative and more effectively illustrate chapter themes and historical events.
- This brief edition meets the needs of instructors who want a lively narrative style without sacrificing the themes and pedagogy that make world history understandable to students. It’s ideal for professors who want to supplement the text with numerous primary sources or whole primary sources.
- The journeys of peoples, ideas, and goods are used to help the reader make sense of the huge range of people, places, and events throughout history. Each chapter centers on a story−a traveler’s account that highlights the book’s main theme, the constant movement of people, goods, and ideas.
- “Movement of Ideas” features include multiple primary source excerpts, both religious and secular, to provide students with contrasting explanations of significant ideas throughout history. They include an introduction and discussion questions to help students understand and analyze the sources presented. Topics include “Doing What Is Right in the Avesta and the Bible” and “Fascism and Youth in the 1930s.”
