Ways of the World: A Brief Global History with Sources is a docutext combining a brief narrative with written and visual primary source collections, providing the convenience of a text and reader in one volume. Ways of the World is thoroughly global in its thematic and comparative approach. The brief narrative highlights major developments, giving students and instructors the room to explore the primary sources fully. Students can connect with Strayer’s distinctive voice and clear, powerful writing. A thoughtful prologue and part-opening essays emphasize the book’s “big picture” approach, and each chapter narrative ends with “Reflections,” a consideration of history and the human enterprise it explores.
