World History Print
World History provides students with a thorough survey of the significant political, socioeconomic, and cultural features of human history from the beginnings of civilization to the contemporary period. Using both primary and secondary sources and document-based investigation, students trace the emergence of the interdependence between world regions—an interaction stimulated by European invasions and colonization and sustained by the contributions of the non-Western regions.
