Editorial Reviews


“…written with students in mind. Chapter organization is very clear, pronunciation guides are provided for words and the work is more economical than other texts … a fine world history textbook … not only accessible to college students but could also be used in AP coursework.”

            -Dr. Robert Bond, San Diego Mesa College


“The general approach and the theme of “connections” are sound and make the text accessible to a wide range of students.”

            -Gregory S. Crider, Winthrop University


“The approach is more than sound – it is innovative and highly effective.”

            -Robert A. Saunders, Farmingdale State College


“…consistent structuring of the content within each chapter under clearly stated and visually helpful headings (blue) and sub-headings (brown).”

            -Karl E. Westhauser,Alabama State University

About the Author

Edward H. Judge and John W. Langdon are professors of history at Le Moyne College, where they have team-taught for the last 20 years a two-semester world history course for first-year students as well as courses on modern global history for upper-level students. Judge earned his doctorate at the University of Michigan and spent a year in the USSR as an IREX scholar. He has taught at Le Moyne since 1978, was the college's scholar of the year in 1994 and was awarded the J. C. Georg Endowed Professorship in 1997. Langdon earned his doctorate at Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Public Affairs, where he was a national defense fellow. He has taught at Le Moyne since 1971, directed its honors program and was awarded the O'Connell Distinguished Teaching Professorship in 1996. Each has been named the college's teacher of the year and has chaired its department of history. They have written or edited eight books: three in collaboration with each other, three as individuals and two in collaboration with other scholars. They love teaching world history, especially to students of diverse backgrounds and interests, and they derive great joy from infecting their students with a passion and enthusiasm for the study of the human past.

4.0 out of 5 stars Needed for school May 27, 2013
By Samhain
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I needed this book for school but didn't want to pay school price so I went to amazon and found this! What I didn't like about the book itself is that some of the information is confusing because some of the details are so subtle. You really have to read between the lines. I still recommend buying this book if you need it for class though. Even though the shipping is fast I don't recommend buying it at the last minute.

Not only is this the first textbook I read cover to cover, but this is the first one I actually enjoyed reading. And the Kindle Version was great. Having the ability to search text is amazing.

Your typical standard history textbook. For all of you having to read this for class, it is not too gruesome.
