About

Overview

VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY, BRIEF EDITION, is a mainstream text for the world history course that masterfully uses the theme of movement--the journeys of peoples, ideas, and goods--to help the reader 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 of the chapter. Students can practice being critical readers by evaluating the traveler's observations and attitudes. VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY includes a primary source feature called "Movement of Ideas," which will help students develop the core skill of analyzing sources by allowing them to compare multiple explanations of significant ideas. This brief text will meet 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 lots of primary sources. Available in the following options: VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY, BRIEF EDITION (Chapters 1-32); Volume I: To 1600 (Chapters 1-16); Volume II: Since 1500 (Chapters 15-32).

Features and Benefits

  • 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 around a story--a traveler's account that highlights the book's main theme, the constant movement of people, goods, and ideas.
  • This brief version of VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY contains all the critical content, themes, and pedagogy in a shorter text that is easier to get through during the term of the course. It is also ideal for instructors who want to supplement their text with lots of primary sources.
  • "Movement of Ideas" features include multiple primary source excerpts to provide readers with contrasting explanations of significant ideas throughout history. They include an introduction and discussion questions to help the reader understand and analyze the sources presented.
  • Student-friendly pedagogical features include chapter outlines, bolded key terms, and an on-page glossary and pronunciation guide. Also included are chapter-opening focus questions and chapter summaries that repeat and discuss the focus questions to help readers grasp the main ideas of the chapters.
  • Available separately, CourseMate brings course concepts to life with interactive learning, study tools, and exam preparation tools that support the printed textbook. Use Engagement Tracker to monitor student engagement in the course and watch student comprehension soar as your class works with the printed textbook and the textbook-specific website. An interactive eBook allows students to take notes, highlight, search, and interact with embedded media (such as quizzes, flashcards, and videos). Features such as "Visual Evidence" and "World History in Today's World" show students how to analyze images and how historical developments have influenced current issues. Access to the History Resource Center, a "virtual reader," provides students with hundreds of primary sources.
