VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY, BRIEF EDITION, masterfully uses the theme of movement−the journeys of peoples, ideas, and goods−to help students make sense of the huge range of people, places, and events throughout history. Each chapter is framed around the story of a person who traveled within the time period and region under discussion. Students can practice being critical readers by evaluating the traveler's observations and attitudes. A primary source feature, “Movement of Ideas,” helps students develop the core skill of analyzing sources by allowing them to compare multiple explanations of significant ideas. This brief text meets the needs of instructors who want a lively narrative style without sacrificing the themes and pedagogy that make world history understandable to students; it is also ideal for instructors who want to supplement a text with many primary sources. Available in the following options: VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY, BRIEF EDITION, 2nd Edition (Chapters 1−32); Volume I: To 1600 (Chapters 1−16); Volume II: Since 1500 (Chapters 15−32). Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
