About The Solution

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 that unite the human past and that identify key global patterns over time. Thorough coverage of political, economic, social, religious, intellectual, cultural, and military history has been integrated into a chronologically ordered synthesis to help students gain an appreciation and understanding of the distinctive character and development of individual cultures in society. This edition of WORLD HISTORY continues to take a global approach to world history, with an emphasis on analytical comparisons between and among cultures throughout history. This approach helps students link events together in a broad comparative and global framework, thereby placing the contemporary world in a more meaningful historical context. WORLD HISTORY is available in the following volume options: WORLD HISTORY, FIFTH EDITION (Chapters 1-29) ISBN: 0495050121; WORLD HISTORY, VOLUME I: TO 1800, FIFTH EDITION (Contains Chapters 1-17) ISBN: 0495050539; WORLD HISTORY, VOLUME II: SINCE 1500, FIFTH EDITION (Contains Chapters 13-29) ISBN: 0495050547; WORLD HISTORY TO 1500, FIFTH EDITION (Contains Chapters 1-12) ISBN: 0495050601.


Additional Product Information

Features/Benefits

  • William Duiker and Jackson Spielvogel, two well-regarded teachers and scholars, present a balanced discussion of political, social, economic, cultural, intellectual, and religious events.
  • The beginning chapters focus on individual cultures that were not as affected by global interaction. Later chapters adopt a more comparative and thematic approach, while the last Part contains a series of chapters that focuses on how individual regions of the world have dealt with common problems related to the Cold War, the rise of globalization, and such problems as overproduction and environmental pollution.
  • Over 200 primary documents (7-8 per chapter) give students access to the kind of material historians draw on when doing their research. The primary documents include a wide variety of documents such as letters, memoirs, song lyrics, official documents, diary entries, menus, poetry, plays, and more. All help to bring history alive for students. Examples include "Face to Face," the Aztec point of view on the arrival of the conquistadors; "Faultline in the Desert," on Antonius Malfante's travels along the Hausa trade route; "The Education of a Courtesan"; and "The Excitement of War."
  • The book contains over 150 four-color maps and 400 pieces of artwork throughout. Between 1 and 4 "spot maps" appear in each chapter, providing critical details on smaller areas not apparent in the larger maps. Expanded map captions encourage readers to think beyond the mere appearance of each map and to make connections across chapters, regions, and concepts.
  • A special insert at the front of the book features a world map and a guide to "How to Use Maps in WORLD HISTORY, FIFTH EDITION."
  • Timelines in every chapter feature thumbnail photos to bring events to life, chronologically list the dates important to the understanding of a period and place historical people and events in a comparative setting.

What's New

  • Comparative emphasis. With more comparisons between and among cultures, this edition clearly indicates the cross-cultural interactions and the broad interrelatedness of the world's peoples. All comparisons reveal the importance and uniqueness of each individual civilization. Examples include early Chinese religion compared with Mesopotamia and Greece; comparisons of the building techniques of the Inka and Great Zimbabwe; the School of Mind compared with Greek philosophy. A complete chapter-by-chapter list appears in the book's Preface.
  • Themes. Seven new 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.
  • A Comparative Essay in every chapter empowers students to see similarities and differences between and among cultures. Examples include "History and the Environment," "Trade and Civilization," and "The Migration of Peoples." The Comparative Illustration and Comparative Essay in each chapter are specifically keyed to one of these themes, thus helping students further identify these connections.
  • A Comparative Illustration in each chapter enables students to see cross-cultural comparisons of rituals, art, war and other topics. Examples include "The Afterlife and Prized Possessions," in Ch. 3, "The Stele," in Ch. 8, "Popular Culture�East and West," in Ch. 16, and "War in the Rice Paddies" in Ch. 25.
  • With increased coverage of Islam, this revision broadens the historic discussion of Islam to help students understand the nature, rise, and spread of Islam. Additional coverage in Ch. 7 includes details of early Islam and early Muslim brotherhoods, and iconoclasm in Islam. Islamic coverage is also expanded in Chapters 22, 23, 27, and 28. For a full list of chapter-by-chapter changes, please see the Preface of the text.
  • This edition has combined coverage of the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment in Ch. 17.
  • Improved pedagogy helps students study. Part openers have been expanded to provide students with a broader comparative overview of the developments in the cultures discussed in that part. A chapter-opening outline, Focus Questions, and Critical Thinking questions appear at the beginning of every chapter. Each chapter now starts with a high-interest vignette to draw students into the material. Throughout, glossary terms are now boldfaced within the text. Subheads have been added within each chapter to help students "chunk" the information more effectively. End-of-chapter and end-of-part timelines now include thumbnail photos to reinforce the material covered. Each part concludes with a succinct "Looking Forward" section that previews the direction taken in the next part of the text.
  • The book's enhanced map and photo program creates interest and offers increased clarity. All maps are now brighter with a more contrasting palette. Many maps in the book have interactive versions on the Book Companion Website to help students review. These maps are identified with a web icon and a caption that leads students to this website. Some maps are paired with photos to underline comparisons and bring geography to life. For example Map 3.3, "Trade Routes of the Ancient World," is paired with illustrations of ancient China. In addition, this edition includes over 80 new photographs.
  • In-text primary source documents, all of which are accompanied by introductions and a question, help guide students to think more critically, comparatively, and thematically when reading the primary source material. Primary source documents and end-of-chapter materials include a list of sample primary source documents available at the Wadsworth World History Resource Center as well (see the Student section for more information on this online resource with over 350 primary source documents included).

This interactive multimedia curriculum on CD-ROM goes beyond the mere chronicling of migratory paths to provide a springboard that allows students to explore a wide range of global issues in social, cultural, economic, and political history. Human migration is the story of individual lives enmeshed in the large themes of identity, culture, work, social institutions, and coercion.

About the Author

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 THE 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), 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. He is the author, with colleague Jackson Spielvogel, of WORLD HISTORY (Sixth Edition, Wadsworth, 2010). 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.

Jackson J. Spielvogel

Jackson J. Spielvogel is associate professor Emeritus of history at The Pennsylvania State University. He received his Ph.D. from The Ohio State University, where he specialized in Reformation history under Harold J. Grimm. His articles and reviews have appeared in journals such as "Moreana," "Journal of General Education," "Catholic Historical Review," "Archiv für Reformationsgeschichte," and "American Historical Review." He also has contributed chapters or articles to "The Social History of Reformation," THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE: A DICTIONARY HANDBOOK, "Simon Wiesenthal Center Annual of Holocaust Studies," and "Utopian Studies." His work has been supported by fellowships from the Fulbright Foundation and the Foundation for Reformation Research. At Penn State, he helped inaugurate the Western civilization course, as well as a popular course on Nazi Germany. His book HITLER AND NAZI GERMANY was published in 1987 (Fourth Edition, 2001). He is the author of WESTERN CIVILIZATION, first published in 1991 (Seventh Edition, 2009). He is the co-author (with William Duiker) of WORLD HISTORY, first published in January 1994 (Sixth Edition, 2010). Professor Spielvogel has won five major university-wide teaching awards. During the year 1988-1989, he held the Penn State Teaching Fellowship, the university's most prestigious teaching award. In 1996, he won the Dean Arthur Ray Warnock Award for Outstanding Faculty member, and in 2000 received the Schreyer Honors College Excellence in Teaching Award.

Reviews

Customer Reviews

"I think the key strength of the Duiker/Spielvogel text these days is its strong organization, a very helpful characteristic to students. Its pictures and timelines are quite helpful as well. The Duiker volume is very thorough, too … academics appreciate this far more than students ever do. … Again, Duiker and Spielvogel continue to provide a strong product year after year. Its hallmarks include superior organization and design."
— Lee Annis, Montgomery College, Rockville
"Why do we stick with D & S year after year? D & S has a good full narrative of historic events and key figures much of the time. … D & S is still … the best of the lot in this respect. D & S is written in a straightforward style, very accessible to our undergraduates. There is also a good balance of Western and non-Western material most of the time. The color prints and other art work are of good quality and illustrate cultures and periods effectively."
— Henry Myers, James Madison University
"Duiker/Spielvogel is concise, well-balanced, and includes an even treatment of many non-Western cultures. … This text’s commitment to presenting world history in a truly global framework is its most singular quality."
— Christopher Ward, Clayton College and State University
"Duiker and Spielvogel have done a superlative job of balancing Western and non-Western history and intermixing political, economic, intellectual, and social history. Effective graphics and student learning features augment a well-written, polished text. … Perhaps the single best thing about this volume: it’s global enough in focus, especially so regarding Asia, for all but the most idiosyncratic professor’s tastes. Instructors who emphasize Western, non-Western, or a truly global model should find this text appropriate to their purposes."
— Edward Crowther, Adams State College
"It seems pretty readable without being too simplistic. I also like the primary text inserts, those are nice and convenient. I use a separate reader, but these sub-sections are very accessible to the students."
— Roger Pauly, University of Central Arkansas
"I liked the readability. This—after accuracy—is my #1 criterion. No matter how wonderful we think a book is, if students won’t or can’t read it, it will be a waste."
— Nancy Cade, Pikeville College
"I will say that Duiker is one of the few ’global’ books that does not go overboard making strange connections. Students just don’t understand the connections some of the other books of this type make. We had no such complaints when we used Duiker."
— Wayne Ackerson, Salisbury University
"This is one of the most attractive world history texts I have seen and I believe most students would agree with me. It is very well-organized, with a very nice layout. Obviously great thought and effort have been put into selection of the maps, charts, photos, and chronologies to make it appealing. More students might even read such an attractive book!"
— Norman Love, El Paso Community College
"Regarding the special features, they add up to make the book especially appealing to the eye and to the learning process. I am thinking in particular about the chronologies within the chapters, the maps, and the photos—especially the comparative photos."
— Norman Love, El Paso Community College
"These (chapter focus questions) are excellent both to guide students and, although many would not admit it, professors teaching this course who encounter material far removed from their graduate training and are looking for organizing principles for class presentations."
— Edward Crowther, Adams State College
"The maps are very good—far better than in the texts I use."
— Aran MacKinnon, State University of West Georgia
"Likewise, the maps are highly satisfactory. I have long used the set of transparencies I got with an early edition of this textbook, and consider them, whether in the book or on transparency, to be superior. They are well drawn, clear, and immediately accessible. The maps also are well placed in the text to allow students to make quick and useful reference while reading."
— Brian Bonhomme, Youngstown State University
"The primary sources chosen for the chapter are entirely appropriate and very usefully edited so as to bring out the essence of the contribution quickly and clearly, but not so much so that students have no interpretational work to do."
— Brian Bonhomme, Youngstown State University
"These (primary source documents) were excellent both in selection and in length. I could imagine getting students to read these; the headnotes are especially helpful."
— Edward Crowther, Adams State College
"The strengths of Duiker/Spielvogel include its writing style, which is clear, concise, and readable; its incorporation of primary source documents throughout the text; and the use of maps, chronologies, and visuals."
— Maura Ryan, Springbrook High School
"As I stated previously, the placement and choice of primary source documents make up one of the strongest features of this textbook."
— Maura Ryan, Springbrook High School
"The maps are used well, and the captions and discussion questions below the maps are a nice improvement over earlier editions. The spot maps are placed very strategically to help the reader understand what and where they are reading about (they don’t have to look for them in the chapter)."
— Maura Ryan, Springbrook High School
"The Duiker and Spielvogel text contains a plethora of useful documents."
— Peggy McKee, Castilleja School
"This (paired comparative documents) is really nice. More and more we are emphasizing the document-based essay, at the AP and, now, the regular level classes as well. Your text really gives us an opportunity to teach this skill along with the role of bias and point-of-view in primary sources."
— Nancy McKnight, Stockton High School
"Great feature. Chronology is very difficult for this level student and this really provides a nice frame of reference for them as they are reading. This is done better in your text than in the one I currently use."
— Nancy McKnight, Stockton High School
"I was very impressed with your focus questions at the beginning of the chapter. They really draw attention to the kind of analysis required in my curriculum, and should make the student read with this frame of mind and guide their note taking more toward analysis not just a list of facts. Yours were better."
— Nancy McKnight, Stockton High School
