The Berkshire Encyclopedia of World History takes a dynamic world history perspective, showing connections and interactions and change over time and place. Major articles by leading scholars, including Martin Marty and Immanuel Wallerstein, examine essential themes and patterns such as Art, Disease, Government, Religion, Science, and War and Peace. Branching out from these overviews are hundreds of articles on processes, movements, places, events, and people.

Originally published in print format in 2004, this title is available in eBook format through Gale Virtual Reference Library.
