9780415670005: World History: Journeys from Past to Present

World History: Journeys from Past to Present uses common themes to present an integrated and comprehensive survey of human history from its origins to the present day. By weaving together thematic and regional perspectives in coherent chronological narratives, Goucher and Walton transform the overwhelming sweep of the human past into a truly global story that is relevant to the contemporary issues of our time.

Revised and updated throughout, the second edition of this innovative textbook combines clear chronological progression with thematically focused chapters divided into six parts as follows:

PART 1. EMERGENCE (Human origins to 500 CE)

PART 2. ORDER (1 CE-1500 CE)

PART 3. CONNECTIONS (500-1600 CE)

PART 4. BRIDGING WORLDS (1300-1800 CE)

PART 5. TRANSFORMING LIVES (1500-1900)

PART 6. FORGING A GLOBAL COMMUNITY (1800- Present)

The expanded new edition features an impressive full-color design with a host of illustrations, maps and primary source excerpts integrated throughout. Chapter opening timelines supply context for the material ahead, while end of chapter questions and annotated additional resources provide students with the tools for independent study. Each chapter and part boasts introductory and summary essays that guide the reader in comprehending the relevant theme.

In addition, the companion website offers a range of resources including an interactive historical timeline, an indispensable study skills section for students, tips for teaching and learning thematically, and PowerPoint slides, lecture material and discussion questions in a password protected area for instructors. This textbook provides a basic introduction for all students of World History, incorporating thematic perspectives that encourage critical thinking, link to globally relevant contemporary issues, and stimulate further study.

Review:

"This book dares to imagine world history (and the world) differently. With verve and originality, the authors journey across the enormous landscape of world history. Each thematic foray brilliantly illuminates our human experience from prehistory to the twenty-first century ... a refreshing change of pace [and]must reading for students interested in world history beyond the textbook." - Anand A. Yang, Golub Chair of International Studies, University of Washington, USA

"Truly deserves the term tour de force ... A history of the world fit for today's global citizens, highlighting the connections, interactions, migrations and cross-fertilizations that shape our world...an extremely impressive piece of work."  – Anne Gerritsen, Warwick University, UK

"A cutting edge rethinking of world history that brings out its underlying themes and dynamics with force and clarity.... It deserves a place on every teacher's book shelf and in every high school and college library." - Peter Winn, Tufts University, USA

"Concise and focussed, it is especially appropriate for freshman level because of the coverage and scope, and also useful at the graduate level to demonstrate how a thematic structure compares to a more chronological approach." – Dorothea Martin, Appalachian State University, USA

"An excellent overview of world historical development. The narrative is clear, coherent and persuasive. It should be read by all who are interested in world history." – Joseph M. Fernando, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur
