The essays are interesting and can be cherry-picked by the instructor to supplement lectures and a main text. But how the devil does a college level textbook get published without an index? There is no way to zero in on specifics on subjects, individuals, events, etc. Damnedest thing I ever saw.

In book "The Human Record: Sources of Global History, Volume II: Since 1500" author Alfred J. Andrea and James H. Overfield discuss glimpses of various historical records and sources of global history those are shaping up history of the world. Many of these historical records pertain to colonial European rules in the respective colonies. This is divided into four sections, viz., S.1 The World in the Era of European Expansion, 1500-1650; S.2 A World of Transformation and Tradition, 1650 to the Early 1800s; S.3 The World in the Age of Western Dominance, 1800-1914; and S.4 Global Society and Its Challenges in the Twentieth Century. This book also provides questions for analysis in every chapter. This book is suitable for Master’s students working for their dissertations.

I needed this book for my comparative history class. There are a lot of interesting documents, the questions are fine and relevant to what you're supposed to take away from the reading, and it's easy to navigate. The documents also have introductions which provide context. Homework goes smoothly whenever I have an assignment in it.

I consider myself fortunate for being in the class and for being introduced to this book! This is a modern perspective on human history.

There is no reason why this book should be this expensive. Greed is obvious here.
