Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Civilizations Past & Present
Twelfth Edition, Volume II (from 1300)
Robert R. Edgar, et al.

“An exceptional text. Clear and engaging writing with sound and current scholarship.”

–Gary Gibbs, Roanoke College

“This is the best book in the field and I recommend it without hesitation. The authors are well qualified, they can write, and they have done their homework.”

–William McDonald, Mid-American Christian University

Written by specialists in Islamic, African, Asian, East European, and ancient history, Civilizations Past & Present offers a clear and accessible analysis of diverse trends shaping world history. Now in its Twelfth Edition, this survey text is well known for its readability, with a strong narrative that examines details at levels appropriate for both students and instructors. Offering strong regional coverage in addition to highlighting the connections between the world’s many cultures and regions, the book explores all of the major areas of historical study: social, political, economic, religious, cultural, and geographic.

New to this Edition

• New co-author Matthew Gordon, a scholar in Middle Eastern history at the Miami University of Ohio, adds new perspectives to the text’s coverage of the Islamic world.
• “Seeing Connections” features in each chapter visually illustrate the diverse linkages between the world’s civilizations, religions, ideologies, arts, and social movements.
• A new chapter on Latin America, 1910 to present (Chapter Thirty-four), examines Latin America from World War I through the turn of the twenty-first century, including the influence of the United States, the region’s role as a Cold War battlefield, and recent economic and political developments sweeping its nations.
• A new closing chapter on the world in the twenty-first century (Chapter Thirty-six), examines key trends shaping the world in the new millennium, including economics, technology, migration, and culture.
• Additional content has been added throughout the book on the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and Oceania.

I rented this for my history class. First things first- Amazon is great with rentals; I got it, read it, and returned it. .simple and easy. The volume was perfect for my Asia History class, and i learned a lot from it.

Quality and speed good. Text was a snoozefest. The author jumps around time and eras like their pants were on fire. You have to read, do your class assignment, as well as chart a time line to keep it all chronologically in order.

Much cheaper than the college bookstore. It was a little bent, but it's an intro history class, which also isn't my major so it wasn't a big deal to me.

I used this textbook in my world history class. I got an A because I did read the textbook and did my homework. Hehehe!
