Product Description

Review

'A History of World Societies is comprehensive in scope and analysis, offering students well-chosen illustrations and maps and a highly readable narrative that prompts in-class discussion.' - K. David Goss, Gordon College, USA

'A History of World Societies is an elegantly written narrative that captures the voices of the human past. The highly respected teacher-scholars who authored the volumes adopt a unique world regional approach with special emphasis on social history and strike the proper balance between breadth and depth. The artful presentation and effective integration of written text and visual materials helps instructors promote history and the historian's craft. The textbook's gorgeous professional layout and diverse pedagogical activities keep students interested and are hallmarks of today's student-centered learning models.' - Matthew D. Esposito, Drake University, USA

'Its strengths are its engaging and often eloquent writing, the best maps of any textbook, useful special features, coverage in the text of individuals both famous and not famous, and balanced coverage.' - David S. Bovee, Fort Hays State University, USA

'The attention paid to gender issues, cross-cultural comparisons and connections, recent scholarship, and the use of art, maps, and boxed features makes A History of World Societies a valuable text. The regional approach is focused and less confusing to both students and instructors.' - Funso Afolayan, University of New Hampshire, USA

'A History of World Societies is a well researched, balanced account of the development of the major world civilizations that provides students with an excellent foundation for their understanding of these civilizations and their achievements.' - Jason M. Stratton, Bakersfield College, USA

I have now read the first ten chapters and am really enjoying it. It is a heavy tome (weight-wise) but the reading experience is anything but. Interesting, level-headed analysis together will illustrative maps and charts.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Rasmus Jensen on 3 Mar. 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I find it to be an interesting read, in fact I find that reading it is very much like watching a good documentary. It doesn't "pick sides" per say, in that it seems to favour whichever people or event it's writing about, rather than picking "heroes" and "villains", in other words, it manages to remain as objective as can be expected. There is an odd tendency to "explain" how certain words are pronounced by spelling them out (rather inaccurate compared to using phonetic symbols, but it is understandable), however, this is only done for -some- of the words that may be unfamiliar to the reader; hence the oddness. Apart from the aforementioned, and some other minor details, the book is good.

Ordered for school and it came in the nic of time. Can use for two classes too. Great bargain of a hard-bound book for a paperback price.

It is a well-written textbook that will be used as a main history reference. One of the better world history textbooks on the market.

Although it was the right book, I was supposed to have a supplement book, also.
