About The Solution

Overview

SOCIETIES, NETWORKS, AND TRANSITIONS connects the different regions of the world between chapters, and explores broader global themes in part-ending essays. This innovative structure combines the accessibility of a regional approach with the rigor of comparative scholarship to show students world history in a truly global framework. The "tree, tree, tree, forest" organization assures that students stay engaged and sure of when and where they are in their study of world history. The text also features a strong focus on culture and religion. Author and veteran teacher Craig Lockard engages students with a unique approach to cultural artifacts; such as, music and art. A range of pedagogical features--including focus questions, section summaries, and web-based study aids--support students and instructors as they explore the interconnectedness of different people, places, and periods in the global past. The Second Edition features all new maps--beautiful to look at and learn with--and an open, student-friendly design. Additionally, the text has been extensively revised to sharpen the narrative. Available in the following split options: SOCIETIES, NETWORKS, AND TRANSITIONS, Second Edition (Chapters 1-31), ISBN: 978-1-439-08520-2; Volume I: To 1500 (Chapters 1-14), ISBN 978-1-439-08535-6; Volume II: Since 1450 (Chapters 15-31), ISBN 978-1-439-08536-3; Volume A: To 600 (Chapters 1-9), ISBN: 978-1-439-08533-2; Volume B: From 600 to 1750 (Chapters 10-18), ISBN: 978-1-439-08540-0; Volume C: Since 1750 (Chapters 19-31), ISBN: 978-1-439-08534-9.


Features/Benefits

  • Comparative mini-chapters at the end of each part, called "Societies, Networks, and Transitions," link the different regions of the world. These brief sections help students understand the interconnectedness of people, places, and periods.
  • "Historical Controversy" boxes, found in each "Societies, Networks, and Transitions" essay, examine scholarly debates; such as, Afrocentricity, Eastern predominance, and globalization, among others. These demonstrate the process of history to students, and that historians can come to different, evidence-based conclusions.
  • Author Craig Lockard--a founding member of the World History Association--applies his expertise in world history instruction to this breakthrough textbook program. His extensive experience teaching this challenging course is evident in the approach and accessibility of the text, particularly its strong pedagogical apparatus.
  • Carefully crafted and tested for optimal student learning, the pedagogical program is the most comprehensive available in world history. Chapter-opening focus questions, brief and comprehensive chronologies, key terms, pronunciation guides, section and chapter summaries, and online study aids encourage active review and promote mastery of the material.
  • A complete online support program for students features practice quizzes, interactive maps, primary sources, flashcards, and more. Among the stand-out technology tools for instructors is HistoryFinder for World History, a comprehensive database of primary source documents, images, maps, and audio/video clips for instructors to utilize in the classroom.
