Description:

Featuring the one author, one voice approach, this text is ideal for instructors who do not wish to neglect the importance of non-Western perspectives on the study of the past. The book is a brief, affordable presentation providing a coherent examination of the past from ancient times to the present. Religion, everyday life, and transforming moments are the three themes employed to help make the past interesting, intelligible, and relevant to students. Readers will find an emphasis on interpretation and analysis as opposed to straightforward presentation of information. Also central to the presentation is the focus on a comparative approach that provides students with a greater understanding of the West through comparisons with other civilizations and cultures. Also included are Original Source boxes as well as web links to additional and complementary information.
