Summary

Appropriate Scope for the Revised AP* World History Curriculum--The six-part organization of the Advanced Placement Edition matches the outline of Major Developments of the 2004-2005 Advanced Placement Program Course Description for World History.

The primary goal of World Civilizations: The Global Experience, Third Edition is to present a truly global history--one that both discusses the development of the world's leading civilizations and also emphasizes the major stages in the interactions among different peoples and societies. The book examines all the world's civilizations, including those in the Western tradition but also those civilizations sometimes neglected in world history texts--for example, the nomadic societies of Asia, Latin America, and the nations and states of the Pacific Rim. World Civilizations balances this discussion of independent developments in all the world's major civilizations with comparative analysis of the results of international contact.
