About

Overview

Developed to meet the demand for a low-cost, high-quality history book, CENGAGE ADVANTAGE BOOKS: WORLD HISTORY, Fifth Edition, offers readers the engaging WORLD HISTORY text in a compact, affordable format. WORLD HISTORY is a global text that examines world civilizations in a comparative way. Students learn to recognize and analyze trends and interconnections across history and civilizations, thus gaining a clearer view of the social and political forces that have shaped our world. CENGAGE ADVANTAGE BOOKS: WORLD HISTORY, VOLUME II includes 51 maps and numerous primary source excerpts that enliven the past while introducing students to the source material of historical scholarship. Available in the following volumes: CENGAGE ADVANTAGE BOOKS: WORLD HISTORY, Fifth Edition (Chapters 1-17), ISBN: 978-1-111-34514-3; Volume I: Before 1600 (Chapters 1-9), ISBN: 978-1-11134-516-7; Volume II: Since 1500 (Chapters 9-17), ISBN: 978-1-11134-513-6.

Features and Benefits

  • “Lives and Times Across Cultures” features, found throughout the text, offer informative, entertaining, and sometimes unusual facts of life that engage student interest and bring a rich insight to the period. Examples include “Inventing Childhood,” and “Political Humor.”
  • At the end of each chapter, a Summary further stresses the comparative aspect of historical study. This increased emphasis on comparison ensures a better integration of the various materials of a given chapter, and clearer overall views of world events.
  • Names and terms are generally translated from their original languages, rather than the Latinized or Anglicized versions. Thus, Qur’an instead of Koran, Tanakh instead of Old Testament, and (post 1949) Mao Zedong instead of Mao Tse-tung and Beijing instead of Peking.
