Compiled by a widely respected world historian and community college teacher,Worlds of Historyfosters historical thinking through thematic comparisons of primary and secondary sources from around the world. Each chapter takes up a major theme such as patriarchy, love and marriage, or globalization as experienced by two or more cultures. "Thinking Historically" exercises build students' capacity to analyze and interpret sources one skill at a time. This flexible framework accommodates a variety of approaches to teaching world history. The latest edition offers a broader range of sources with an even more global perspective.
