9780312157890: Worlds of History: A Comparative Reader, Vol. 1: To 1550

Compiled by a widely respected world historian and community college teacher, Worlds of History fosters historical thinking through thematic comparisons of primary and secondary sources from around the world. Each chapter takes up a major theme — such as patriarchy, love and marriage, or globalization — as experienced by two or more cultures. "Thinking Historically" exercises build students’ capacity to analyze and interpret sources one skill at a time. This flexible framework accommodates a variety of approaches to teaching world history. The latest edition offers a broader range of sources with an even more global perspective.
