Summary: Spielvogel's clear, lively, and informative writing style is central to the text's success with students. Numerous testimonials from professors state that the readability of the text is a primary reason they use it; an adoption list that ranges from Ivy League universities to two-year technical colleges supports this assertion.

Even distribution of social, cultural, economic, and political history ensures that readers have a balanced understanding of the ca
uses and consequences of events.

The text's rich collection of primary documents gives students access to the kind of material historians rely upon: letters, memoirs, song lyrics, official documents, diary entries, menus, poetry, plays, and more. Selected "contrasting" primary documents help students see one topic from two perspectives.

Over 300 four-color maps and artwork reproductions appear throughout the text. A pull-out map, along with a walkthrough and a feature entitled "How to Read a Map," appear at the front of the text, thus helping students understand the important connection between geography and the development of historical events.

Chronologies in every chapter list dates important to the understanding of a period and place historical people and events in a comparative setting.
