VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY, BRIEF EDITION, masterfully uses the theme of movement?the journeys of peoples, ideas, and goods?to help readers make sense of the overwhelming range of people, places, and events throughout history. Each chapter begins with, and is framed around, the story of a person who traveled within the time period and region under discussion. Readers will enjoy the stories and will also learn to critically evaluate the traveler's observations and attitudes. A primary source feature called "Movement of Ideas" helps readers to analyze original sources by providing multiple explanations of significant ideas throughout history.
