Contexts and Connections essays appear in approximately every other chapter, highlighting historical subjects with interesting links across eras, such as The Indian Invention of "Arabic" Numerals in chapter 9 and The Holy Herb Nicotine in chapter 25.
The new Chapter 36 is titled Nationalism and Political Identities in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. This chapter b...show morerings together significant information found in other chapters in the previous edition, and also provides several new sections of important information on Africa and Latin America.
Primary Source Investigator (PSI) CD-ROM is now included with each copy of the text. PSI offers hundreds of primary sources, contextual information on each source, and thought-provoking questions that show students how historians look at sources. PSI also has a program that walks students through how to write a paper using sources as evidence.
What was Chapter 36, An Age of Anxiety, has been divided into two chapters. A now shorter Chapter 35 focuses on economic and political turmoil in the West in the decades following World War I, including the rise of the Nazis in Germany, the fascists in Italy, and Soviet communism under Lenin and Stalin. Chapter 35 also covers significant cultural developments in the West in the first half of the twentieth century.
The material on the Russian empire, formerly found in chapter 29, is now incorporated into other chapters (especially Chapters 23 and 24), placed more fully in the context of other expanding powers of the era.
Each of the primary source excerpts, Sources from the Past, now ends with a thought-provoking question to prod the reader to contextualize and think critically about the key issues raised in the document.
Chapters now open with a table of contents of both primary and secondary heads, so that students have a better indication of what will be covered in the chapter and where.
Scores of minor changes, corrections, and added descriptions help to clarify and improve the historical coverage and accuracy, many reflecting recent scholarship.
New titles have been selectively added to the For Further Reading lists included at the end of every chapter.
