From the Back Cover:

Developed after years of experience teaching world history, the second, substantially revised edition of this pioneering text deftly guides the student reader through the vast array of details that litters the landscape of humanity's past, breaking down an otherwise unwieldy narrative into meaningful and comprehensive chapters. The use of central, recurrent themes in the text enables a comparative analysis of the great civilizations that developed in Eurasia, Africa, and the Americas. These themes also address problems of food production, population dynamics, disease history, warfare, the ecological impact of human activity, and the role climate played in the history of civilization.

This new edition of World History: A Concise Thematic Analysis features a newly-designed interior organization to enhance navigation and comprehension of the material. An instructors’ test bank is available online.
