About

Overview

Noted teachers and scholars William J. Duiker and Jackson J. Spielvogel present a balanced, highly readable overview of world history that explores common challenges and experiences of the human past and identifies key patterns over time. Thorough coverage of political, economic, social, religious, intellectual, cultural, and military history is integrated into a chronological framework to help students gain an appreciation and understanding of the distinctive character and development of individual cultures in society. This approach, with organization around seven major themes (Science and Technology; Arts and Ideas; Family and Society; Politics and Government; Earth and the Environment; Religion and Philosophy; and, Interaction and Exchange), helps students link events together in a broad comparative and global framework, thereby placing the contemporary world in a more meaningful historical context. Available in the following options: WORLD HISTORY, Seventh Edition (Chapters 1-30); Volume I: To 1800 (Chapters 1-18); Volume II: Since 1500 (Chapters 14-30).

Features and Benefits

  • Seven central themes make the narrative more cohesive while helping students make connections and comparisons across chapters. These themes are: Science and Technology; Arts and Ideas; Family and Society; Politics and Government; Earth and the Environment; Religion and Philosophy; and, Interaction and Exchange. Comparative Essays, Comparative Illustrations, and Documents are each keyed to one of these themes.
  • The book contains over 150 four-color maps and 400 pieces of artwork throughout. Between one and four "spot maps" appear in each chapter, providing critical details on smaller areas not apparent in the larger maps. Map captions encourage readers to think beyond the mere appearance of each map and to make connections across chapters, regions, and concepts.
  • "Film & History" features analyze popular films using a historian's perspective to show students how movies represent, and sometimes misrepresent, the past. These features shine the spotlight on films such as: The Message (1976), The Adventures of Marco Polo (1938) and Marco Polo (2007), The Lion in Winter (1968), The Mission (1986), Khartoum (1966), and Gandhi (1982). New to this edition are Persepolis (2007), Gladiator (2000), Marie Antoinette (2006), and The Young Victoria (2009).
  • "Opposing Viewpoints" features present two or more primary source documents representing differing perspectives on the same or related topics. These features provide students an opportunity for hands-on analysis. The accompanying critical-thinking questions can be assigned for individual or collaborative study. These features include "Akhenaten's Hymn to Aten and Psalm 104 of the Hebrew Bible" (Chapter 1), "The Siege of Jerusalem: Christian and Muslim Perspectives" (Chapter 7), "Action or Inaction: An Ideological Dispute in Medieval China" (Chapter 10), "Response to Revolution: Two Perspectives" (Chapter 19),"Advice to Women: Two Views" (Chapter 20), "Three Voices of Peacemaking" (Chapter 23), "Peaceful Existence or Peoples' War?" (Chapter 26), and "Africa: Dark Continent or Radiant Land?" (Chapter 29).
  • Comparative Essays such as "History and the Environment," "Trade and Civilization," "Cities in the Medieval World," "The Rise of Nationalism," "Paths to Modernization," and "One World, One Environment" highlight similarities and differences between and among cultures, while Comparative Illustrations (with critical-thinking questions) enable students to see cross-cultural comparisons of rituals, art, war and other topics. Examples include "The Afterlife and Prized Possessions," in Chapter 3, "The Stele," in Chapter 8, "The Taj Mahal: Symbol of the Exotic East," in Chapter 16, and "The Bombing of Civilians: East and West" in Chapter 25. These essays and illustrations are specifically keyed to one of the seven themes, helping students further identify connections.
  • An outline, focus questions, and critical-thinking questions appear at the beginning of every chapter, and each chapter starts with a vignette to draw students into the material. Throughout, glossary terms are boldfaced within the text. Frequent subheads help students "chunk" the information more effectively.

Author Bio

William J. Duiker

William J. Duiker is liberal arts Professor Emeritus of East Asian studies at The Pennsylvania State University. A former U.S. diplomat with service in Taiwan, South Vietnam, and Washington, D.C., he received his doctorate in Far Eastern history from Georgetown University in 1968, where his dissertation dealt with the Chinese educator and reformer Cai Yuanpei. At Penn State, he has written extensively on the history of Vietnam and modern China, including the highly acclaimed COMMUNIST ROAD TO POWER IN VIETNAM (revised edition, Westview Press, 1996), which was selected for a Choice Outstanding Academic Book Award in 1982—1983 and 1996-1997. Other recent books are CHINA AND VIETNAM: THE ROOTS OF CONFLICT (Berkeley, 1987), U.S. CONTAINMENT POLICY AND THE CONFLICT IN INDOCHINA (Stanford, 1995), SACRED WAR: NATIONALISM AND REVOLUTION IN A DIVIDED VIETNAM (McGraw-Hill, 1995), and HO CHI MINH (Hyperion, 2000), which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in 2001. While his research specialization is in the field of nationalism and Asian revolutions, his intellectual interests are considerably more diverse. He has traveled widely and has taught courses on the history of communism and non-Western civilizations at Penn State, where he was awarded a Faculty Scholar Medal for Outstanding Achievement in the spring of 1996. In 2002, the College of Liberal Arts honored him with an Emeritus Distinction Award.

He is the author of WESTERN CIVILIZATION, first published in 1991 (Ninth Edition, 2015). Professor Spielvogel has won five major university-wide teaching awards.
