New Features

  • More emphasis has been placed on visual sources. There are over 40 new images in each volume, and the text is now in full color. Highlights of new images in Volume I include the Hagia Triada sarcophagus, a relief of the family of Akhenaten, the Thera Kouros, the Peplos Kore, Artemis Krater, the Clinic Painter--an aryballos, Woman Standing on a Makara, the Bactrian Ewer, Gold Coin of Kanishka I, Mathuran Buddha, Champa Shiva, Sufis Performing Sama, Minamoto Yoritomo, Removal of the Imperial Family to Rukuhara, Sogdian Wine Merchant, Bezelik Musicians, Mandala of Vajabhairava & Two Yuan Emperors, the Sacramentary of Charles the Bald, Fresco from the oratory of San Silvestro, Virgin Hodegetria, A Yoruba Man, Adena Man, and Moche Seated Man.

  • In response to feedback from instructors, we reorganized the content of Volume I, changing the date range from "To 1700" to "To 1500" and going from thirteen chapters to eleven chapters.

Additional Features

  • A "Multiple Voices" feature in each part illustrates one of the following: multiple viewpoints on a common event or phenomenon, multiple sources that demonstrate changes over time, or multiple perspectives from different cultures on a common issue.

  • The prologue, "Primary Sources and How to Read Them," outlines a process for the reading and analysis of the sources in the text.

  • Part, chapter, section, and individual source introductions help users place primary sources within a historical context.

  • "Questions for Analysis" precede each source and are presented in a three-tiered format that resembles a historian's approach to source analysis.

  • Each volume opens with useful topical and geographical Tables of Contents for flexible instruction.

  • An Instructor's Resource Manual provides strategies for teaching from the text.
