Summary: How the book will help you in the course:
  • William Duiker and Jackson Spielvogel, two well-regarded teachers and scholars, present a balanced discussion of political, social, economic, cultural, intellectual, and religious events, giving students a well-rounded understanding of the development of individual civilizations and of world history as a whole.
  • Over 100 primary documents (4 per chapter) provid
    e students with access to the kind of material historians draw on when doing their research. The primary documents include a wide variety of documents, such as letters, memoirs, song lyrics, official documents, diary entries, menus, poetry, plays, and more. All help to bring history alive for students.
  • The book's rich map and photo program draws today's visual learners into the era and culture they are studying. Between 1 and 4 "spot maps" appear in each chapter, providing critical details on smaller areas not apparent in the larger maps. Expanded map captions encourage readers to think beyond the mere appearance of each map and to make connections across chapters, regions, and concepts.
  • A special insert at the front of the book features a world map and a guide to "How to Use Maps in THE ESSENTIAL WORLD HISTORY, THIRD EDITION."
  • Timelines in every chapter chronologically list the dates important to the understanding of a period and place historical people and events in a comparative setting. Timelines are also available on the Book Companion Website with critical thinking questions and direct links to relevant images.
