Synopsis: The authors of VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY never forget that history is made up of the stories of people. Each chapter of the text centers on a story--a traveler's account that highlights the book's main theme, the constant movement of people, goods, and ideas. The travelers include merchants, poets, rulers, explorers, soldiers, missionaries, and scholars, and their voyages provide a framework for each chapter that will draw you into the stories of world history. For the second edition of this text, the authors added broad global connections to every chapter, which will help you understand events in a larger context. VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY helps you make sense of the range of people, places, and events crucial to comprehension of world history. Available in the following split options: VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY, Second Edition Complete, Volume 1: To 1600, and Volume 2: Since 1500.
