Sharing a thoughtful collection of important primary source documents essential to world history, PRIMARY SOURCE READER FOR WORLD HISTORY is an affordable supplement for students and a valuable complement to any world history or world civilization class. More than 50 percent of the primary source documents that comprise this new two-volume reader are non-Western so as to give students a broad perspective on the history of the world. The primary source readings are divided by eras and organized according to principal themes such as religion, law and government, and everyday life. Each group of readings has a section describing the significance of subsequent readings and how those readings interrelate. Individual readings include a head note and various study questions intended to guide student reading and understanding. Brief and inexpensive, this reader is available to package with any of our world history texts. VOLUME I and VOLUME II can be packaged both together and separately.
