About The Solution

Overview

The authors of VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY never forget that history is made up of the stories of people. Each chapter of the text centers on a story--a traveler's account that highlights the book's main theme, the constant movement of people, goods, and ideas. The travelers include merchants, poets, rulers, explorers, soldiers, missionaries, and scholars, and their voyages provide a framework for each chapter that will draw you into the stories of world history. For the second edition of this text, the authors added broad global connections to every chapter, which will help you understand events in a larger context. The print text integrates with an online experience through the interactive Voyages Map App (fully accessible via any computer or mobile device), which will transport you virtually to the locations in the book to learn about the historic sites, and also includes a wealth of study tools. VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY helps you make sense of the range of people, places, and events crucial to comprehension of world history. Available in the following split options: VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY, Second Edition Complete, Volume 1: To 1600, and Volume 2: Since 1500. Available with InfoTrac® Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.


Additional Product Information

Features/Benefits

  • The text's overarching theme of movement and contact allows broad coverage of the most important topics in world history, including the changing political structures of empire, religion, and social structure. Travelers provide crucial comparisons between their own societies and those they visited, sometimes highlighting cross-cultural misperceptions. In addition, each chapter devotes extensive space to the experiences of women.
  • Visual Evidence (visual source) features teach students how to analyze visual historical evidence such as sculpture, photographs, paintings, and architecture. These illustrated features draw students' attention to the important aspects of the piece, and discussion questions help students analyze the information presented. Topics include "The Ruins of Great Zimbabwe" and "Representing the Casta System."
  • World History in Today's World essays show students how historical developments relate to current issues. These features include such topics as "The Maya Calendar and the End of the World," "Baseball in Asia," and "The Jasmine Revolution and the Arab Spring."
  • The primary source feature, Movement of Ideas, exposes students to textual sources, both religious and secular. An introduction and discussion questions help students understand and analyze the sources presented. Topics include "Doing What Is Right in the Avesta and the Bible" and "Gandhi and Nehru on Progress and Civilization."
  • Student-friendly pedagogical features include chapter outlines, bolded key terms, an on-page glossary, and pronunciation guides in the text. Also included are chapter-opening focus questions that help students grasp the main ideas of the chapters.
  • In a new "Context and Connections" feature at the end of every chapter, the authors make broad connections and offer historical context for the many themes and regions discussed in that chapter to help you understand events in a larger context. A new comparative section on the chapter's timeline reinforces these connections.
  • Six travelers have been changed for the second edition: Chapter 1, Mungo Man, a prehistoric find in Australia; Chapter 5, Mau Piailug, a contemporary Polynesian navigator who uses only traditional methods, like the stars, ocean, and currents; Chapter 8, Ennin, a Japanese Buddhist priest who goes to China to study; Chapter 23, Mikhail Bakunin, the Russian anarchist; Chapter 17, Evliya Çelebi, an Ottoman diplomat, observer, and diarist; Chapter 32, Ai Weiwei, a contemporary Chinese artist who is being persecuted by the government.
  • "Voyages on the Web" box refers you to material in the Voyages Map App, an excursion to historical sites in the chapter, supported by interactive activities and study tools such as flashcards, quizzes, chapter summaries that repeat and discuss the focus questions, and animated maps. The Voyages Map App can be purchased separately, and is included as part of CourseMate.

Reviews

Customer Reviews

"This is one of the latest entries into the field of World History texts and it is one of the best. It takes a lot of the solid features of some of the better texts out there and adds some very cool and unique features like fine maps, an excellent pronunciation guide and a cool traveler's component."
— Brian Gurian, HACC and Shippensburg University
"The premise of the book drew me in immediately--and I am a very hard sell on a world civ book! . . . I think that the theme established creates a sense of cohesion. . . . I love the approach. My department has recently taken a more global history approach to world civ and this book seems well suited to this approach. . . . I can see this book engaging many students."
— LaQuita Saunders, Arkansas State University
