E-BOOK EXCERPT

This comprehensive, accessible survey of world history has been extensively revised to provide an even more global and comparative perspective on the events and processes that have shaped our increasingly interdependent world. Written by leading scholars in their respective fields, Heritage of World Civilizations, 6/e, combines unusually strong and thorough coverage of the unique heritage of Asian, African, Islamic, Western, and American civilizations, while highlighting the role of the world's great religious and philosophical traditions. Interactive maps—one Web-based interactive map in each chapter—provides readers with opportunities to explore the relationships between time and space in shaping world history. A three-volume organization (available in A,B,C splits)— Volume A covers antiquity to 1300; Volume B covers the period from 1300-1850; and Volume C covers the Enlightenment to the present. Sixth editions now provide roughly the same amount of coverage for European and non-European regions. Volumes include European events during the High Middle Ages and Renaissance; extensive discussion of globalization, terrorism, and the challenges facing the world in the 21st century; revised coverage of the ancient world—treatment of the origins of humankind has been completely rewritten to reflect the newest scholarship; provides significant new coverage of women in ancient Greece and Rome. For anyone interested in world civilization or world history.
