Sources of World History, Volume II
(ISBN-10: 0495913189 | ISBN-13: 9780495913184)
Edited by Mark Kishlansky, this reader is designed to supplement world history courses with a rich array of primary source materials, including constitutional documents, political theory, philosophy, imaginative literature, and social description. Opting for longer selections that allow students to gain a deeper sense of authors and their texts, the editor has chosen each selection because of its ability to raise a significant issue around which classroom discussions or lectures can evolve. This reader contains works that are representative of major civilization complexes (Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Islamic world, and Western civilization).

(ISBN-10: 0495318701 | ISBN-13: 9780495318705)
This classic introduction to the techniques of research and the art of expression is used widely in history courses, but is also appropriate for writing and research methods courses in other departments. Barzun and Graff thoroughly cover every aspect of research, from the selection of a topic through the gathering, analysis, writing, revision, and publication of findings presenting the process not as a set of rules but through actual cases that put the subtleties of research in a useful context. Part One covers the principles and methods of research; Part Two covers writing, speaking, and getting one’s work published.
