About This Edition

From the Publisher


New Features

  • More emphasis has been placed on visual sources. There are over 40 new images in each volume, and the text is now in full color. Highlights of new images in Volume I include the Hagia Triada sarcophagus, a relief of the family of Akhenaten, the Thera Kouros, the Peplos Kore, Artemis Krater, the Clinic Painter--an aryballos, Woman Standing on a Makara, the Bactrian Ewer, Gold Coin of Kanishka I, Mathuran Buddha, Champa Shiva, Sufis Performing Sama, Minamoto Yoritomo, Removal of the Imperial Family to Rukuhara, Sogdian Wine Merchant, Bezelik Musicians, Mandala of Vajabhairava & Two Yuan Emperors, the Sacramentary of Charles the Bald, Fresco from the oratory of San Silvestro, Virgin Hodegetria, A Yoruba Man, Adena Man, and Moche Seated Man.

  • In response to feedback from instructors, we reorganized the content of Volume I, changing the date range from "To 1700" to "To 1500" and going from thirteen chapters to eleven chapters.

Additional Features

  • A "Multiple Voices" feature in each part illustrates one of the following: multiple viewpoints on a common event or phenomenon, multiple sources that demonstrate changes over time, or multiple perspectives from different cultures on a common issue.

  • The prologue, "Primary Sources and How to Read Them," outlines a process for the reading and analysis of the sources in the text.

  • Part, chapter, section, and individual source introductions help users place primary sources within a historical context.

  • "Questions for Analysis" precede each source and are presented in a three-tiered format that resembles a historian's approach to source analysis.

  • Each volume opens with useful topical and geographical Tables of Contents for flexible instruction.

  • An Instructor's Resource Manual provides strategies for teaching from the text.

I rented the Kindle edition of this book for a class and probably a third if not more of the "Primary Sources" we have been assigned are replaced with "Text not available due to copyright restriction". Furthermore, I can only open the book on my phone's kindle as it is apparently the only "compatible" device I own. This is extremely annoying as it is much easier highlighting via my laptop or cloud reader.

This is a great book for any World Civilizations course. Was a required buy for my class but has excerpts giving unique insight on the day to day lives and recording techniques of the times. Great supplemental text for any Pre-1500 History Course.

The book is small in size, weighs a lot and paperback. The stories are sometimes fun to read and sometimes confusing format. The stories are informative and helped me to understand what life was like and attitudes at the time frame of the story. I needed this book for college History before 1500 AD class. I think it is extremely expensive to purchase so I rented it.

This is a wonderful read of Human History, while it's not as in depth as I like I could only imagine the thickness and quantity of books to suite my desired in depth review of history. For the time being this does an excellent job of giving you the timeline of Human History.

I wish I had known the Kindle version would be missing half the text due to "copyright restrictions." How are you going to rent me a textbook and then not give me access to the whole thing? Now I have an essay due on Monday and don't have the material to write it. I guess I'll spend my weekend trying to find another copy of the book I already paid for.

I had to get this for a class, but ended up reading the entire book. It has great primary sources in it. The sources are taken out from many different time periods in history.
