Worlds Together, Worlds Apart

A HISTORY OF THE WORLD: FROM THE BEGINNINGS OF HUMANKIND TO THE PRESENT

Concise Edition

Paperback + Digital Product License Key Folder

Volume(s): One-Volume

WITH EBOOK AND INQUIZITIVE REGISTRATION CARD

ELIZABETH POLLARD (AUTHOR, SAN DIEGO STATE UNIVERSITY)
CLIFFORD ROSENBERG (AUTHOR, CITY COLLEGE AND THE GRADUATE CENTER, CUNY)
ROBERT TIGNOR (AUTHOR, PRINCETON UNIVERSITY)

    The Concise Edition of Worlds Together, Worlds Apart offers the most integrated global approach by highlighting themes across every region of the world in each chapter. Most chapters have been reorganized and revised to emphasize global themes, balance coverage across regions, and put the focus on important regional connections and comparisons, resulting in a streamlined edition that is 40% shorter than its parent text.  

    Each chapter is framed chronologically—beginning and ending at major periods in world history—and organized thematically around a significant event in world history, such as the building of the Silk Road (Chapter 6) and the spread of the Black Death (Chapter 11). This streamlined discussion of time periods draws each region (including Europe, Asia, the Americas, and Africa) into most chapters, seamlessly giving students the big picture across the globe.

Elizabeth Pollard and Clifford Rosenberg—also the co-authors of the new Worlds Together, Worlds Apart, Concise Edition—have edited with expert awareness of what works best for survey students. In so doing, they have brought the Second Edition into even closer alignment with Worlds Together, Worlds Apart Concise and Fourth Editions and deliver a vibrant mix of shorter, intermediate, and longer documents.
