Traditions & Encounters offers an inclusive vision of the global past―one that is meaningful and appropriate for the interdependent world of contemporary times. Given the diversity of human societies, gathering and organizing the sheer mass of information in a meaningful way is a daunting challenge for any world history survey course. The seven-part chronological organization enables students to understand the development of the world through time, while also exploring broader, big-picture thematic issues in world history. Through new and revised chapter-level and part-level features, the hallmark twin themes of traditions and encounters emerge in greater clarity than ever before in this sixth edition. As a result, students have resources that enable them to move beyond the facts of history and examine the past critically, analyze causes and effects, and recognize similarities and differences across world regions and time periods. By digging deeper into the implications of world history’s stories―not just the who, the what, and the where, but also the why and the how―students can make sense of the human past.
Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective.

Jerry H. Bentley was professor of history at the University of Hawai‘i and editor of the
Journal of World History. His research on the religious, moral, and political writings of
Renaissance humanists led to the publication of Humanists and Holy Writ: New Testament
Scholarship in the Renaissance (Princeton, 1983) and Politics and Culture in Renaissance
Naples (Princeton, 1987). More recently, his research was concentrated on global history
and particularly on processes of cross-cultural interaction. His book Old World Encounters:
Cross-Cultural Contacts and Exchanges in Pre-Modern Times (New York, 1993) examines
processes of cultural exchange and religious conversion before the modern era, and his pamphlet
Shapes of World History in Twentieth-Century Scholarship (Washington, D.C., 1996)
discusses the historiography of world history. His most recent publication is The Oxford
Handbook of World History (Oxford, 2011), and he served as a member of the editorial team
preparing the forthcoming Cambridge History of the World. Jerry Bentley passed away in
