Summary

78 new primary sources in the text, such as an Egyptian nobleman's obituary, Assyrian proverbs, explorers'description of Prester John, and a section of Pepys' diary about Charles II's arrival in England.

Each source is accompanied by an introductory paragraph that offers the reader some context for understanding the source. Questions after the document invite the student to "Investigate the Document." For example, after reading Herodotus' account of Xerxes invasion of Greece, students are asked to consider how Herodotus estimated the size of the invading force, and how the force supplied itself.

Hundreds more primary sources are available through the book's Online Learning Center: www.mhhe.com/sherman2updated. For students, the OLC also offers quizzing for each chapter (multiple choice, true/false, and brief essay questions) as well map exercises, global connections exercises, biography exercises, and two types of chronology exercises.
