Review:


"I can't imagine a better book than this. It makes teaching a balanced course so much easier and provides substantial resources for students."--Marika Snider, Miami University


"I really value the broad scope of Patterns of World History. I also like the 'patterns' between cultures and historical development; they place everything within a wide context. The authors keep their approach consistent throughout the chapters, which supplements my lectures nicely."--AnnaMarie Vallis, California State University, Fresno


"The 'Seeing Patterns' questions at the start of each chapter help students look for the larger themes, while the maps, illustrations, and primary source quotes are wonderful. The instructor's supplemental material, both online and in print, is amazingly good."--Michael Johnson, Northwest Arkansas Community College


"Patterns of World History elevates the level of discourse, and makes students aware that there are higher levels of understanding facts."--Gilmar Visoni, Queensborough Community College
