Earth and Its Peoples, Complete - 3rd edition

Earth and Its Peoples, Complete (ISBN10: 0618403345; ISBN13: 9780618403349)
ISBN13: 978-0618403349
ISBN10: 0618403345

Summary: This text provides a truly global approach to the world history survey. Its fundamental theme--the interaction of human beings and the environment--serves as a point of comparison for different times, places, and societies. Special emphasis is given to technology and how technological development underlies all human activity.

The Third Edition combines strong scholarship and pedagogy to uphold the book's reputation for rigor and accessibility. Several featu moreres, such as detailed maps (five of which are new to this edition), images, and timelines, help students build their geography and comparative analysis skills. Illustrated "Environment and Technology" boxes reinforce the central theme of the text by highlighting and comparing technological developments over time.

  • New! The total number of chapters has been reduced from 35 to 34 by combining the chapters on Western and Eastern Eurasia, 1200-1500.
  • New! Chapters 3 and 4 (from 200 to 250 B.C.E) have been completely reorganized for more cohesive presentation.
  • New! Expanded coverage of 19th century and medieval Russia includes new maps of Kievan Russia and the Byzantine Empire.
  • New! Coverage of Meiji Japan and late 19th-century U.S. expansionism has been revised to improve readability and eliminate unnecessary details.
  • New! Updated coverage of recent events and developments includes new maps of worldwide stresses on fresh water supply, global economic and trade groups, and country-by-country GDP.
  • New! "Diversity and Dominance" boxes highlight primary sources of substantial length; Chapters 1, 12, and 23 feature visual sources. Students are invited to explore the meaning and significance of each passage or image through a series of focus questions.
  • "Key Terms" are highlighted within the text and defined in a glossary at the end of the book for easy review. less
