Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this second edition, the book's non-Eurocentric approach continues with expansions of the original eleven world history "turning point" stories from the modern period to include ten more "turning point" stories from the earlier periods of world history. From the history of the world's first cities built on the great rivers of Afro-Eurasia, to the formation of the Silk Road, to the rise of nation-states, and the story of modern globalization, Worlds Together, Worlds Apartprovides students with the stories that changed history and enables them to make the connections they need in order to better understand how the world came to be what it is today.

Synopsis:

Imagine twelve leading historians meeting monthly for nine years to discuss innovative ways to present world history.

The end result of these conversations is "Worlds Together, Worlds Apart," a unique survey that enables readers to see world history through the eyes of Westerners and non-Westerners alike. Challenging conventional wisdom, this text demonstrates that the rise of the West was unanticipated and, even in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, was never fully realized or stable. Rather than treating cultures and regions as discrete entities, "Worlds Together, Worlds Apart" presents a compelling, event-driven narrative that integrates every region of the world into every chapter.

Synopsis:

True to its title, this uniquely integrated text highlights the stories and themes in world history that tied cultures and regions together, and in some cases, drove them apart.
