Places of Encounter provides a place-based approach to world history, focusing on specific locations at critical moments when human history was transformed as a result of encounters-physical, political, cultural, intellectual, and religious. Original, contributed essays by leading academics in the field explore places from Hadar to Xi'an, Salvador to New York, and numerous other locations that have produced historical shockwaves and significant global impact throughout history. With a chronologically organized table of contents, each chapter dissects a particular moment in history, with personal commentary from each contributor, a narrative of the location's historical significance at the time, and a section on significant global connections. Primary sources and discussion questions at the end of each chapter allow students a view into the lives of individuals of the time. Students will experience the narrative of historic individuals as well as modern scholars looking back over documentation to offer their own views of the past, providing students with the perfect opportunity to see how scholars form their own views about history.

Review:

This book presents world history accessibly and succinctly through key sites and cities, from Xi'an to Carthage to Potosi. It will work well together with the current textbooks that emphasize interaction and connections in world history. The authors draw students in to their subjects with accounts of their own personal engagement with their chosen site or city, an especially welcome feature.”
J.R. McNeill, Georgetown University

Places of Encounter is an ideal text for an increasingly mobile college student body. Yet beyond giving students an appreciation for the diversity of places in human experience, the authors of Places of Encounter impress upon its readers the uniqueness of human experience across time and space. It is a valuable tool for stressing the singularity of human experience across the globe and throughout millennia.”
Dr. Evan R. Ward, Brigham Young University
