For one- or two-semester courses in World History, Comparative History, Humanities and Civilization as well as Multicultural Studies programs.From a truly global perspective, this two-volume narrative tells the story of human events on the move-the exciting "event history" of wars and politics, booms and busts, the rise and fall of empires, and more. It also reaches beyond the events that have shaped world history to trace the broader development of human institutions and ideas as they evolve through time. Coverage of both events and broader trends is presented as part of major global movements, through the lives of the people who lived them, and as succinctly and vividly as possible.
