From the Back Cover:

  • Enables students to master important concepts in world history by focusing on a specific issue and using this issue to allow them to perceive and understand the overall patterns and meaning of our shared global past.
  • Helps students think critically about what they are studying through explanatory narrative, primary sources, throught-provoking questions about the primary sources, and a summary analysis that enables them make global connections and, in the process, to discover some of the most important driving forces in world history.
  • Places the latest research and most recent debates, as well as some of the evidence upon which historians base their insights, into a form and context that is comprehensible to students and general readers alike.
