Global in scope, William McNeill's widely acclaimed one-volume history emphasizes the four Old World civilizations of the Middle East, India, China, and Europe, paying particular attention to their interaction across time as well as the impact on historical scholarship in light of the most recent archaeological discoveries. The engaging and informative narrative touches on all aspects of civilization, including geography, communication, and technological and artistic developments, and provides extensive coverage of the modern era. This new edition includes a thoroughly updated bibliographic essay and a new discussion of the most significant events in world history and civilization since 1976.

Review:

"A fine synthesis with clear maps and plates and an extraordinarily useful bibliographical guide."--Aran S. MacKinnon, State University of West Georgia

"Mc Neill's survey is a genuine world history that integrates traditional western civilization with an expansive global synthesis."--James A. Brown, Tougaloo College

Praise for previous editions

"He has a vision of the history of mankind as the unity that it always has been potentially and that it has become in fact in our time....He makes a complicated story lucid." --Arnold Toynbee

"This work reveals anew the breadth of vision and gift for synthesis that distinguished Professor McNeills The Rise of the West. He has a special talent for relating in meaningful ways the patterns of the great civilizations, their borrowings, their conflicts, and their contributions to global
history."--Geoffrey Bruun
