From the ancient conquest of fire and the first turn of a wheel to the latest in scientific leaps toward the stars, this easy-access history offers a panoramic perspective on humankind's restless quest for the laws, theories, and tools by which we can grasp and master our universe. This concise, concentrated, consistently organized look at our species' key scientific and innovative achievements spans all human history, presenting ten distinct eras from the first glimmers of intelligence to the cutting-edge technologies of the modern world. Within these intuitive divisions, all human scientific endeavors and achievement are divided into four general fields of inquiry and arrayed into four basic geocultural regions for easy comparison in a logical, systematic grid format highlighted by 350 photographs, maps, illustrations, and diagrams that add graphic emphasis to key information. Special two-page feature spreads explore the most revolutionary developments in greater depth; compelling, expertly composed essays and memorable quotations add sparkle; and informative sidebars provide specifically focused items of information about particular inventions, ideas, or themes. Completing this comprehensive approach, an extensive glossary explains unfamiliar terms, and a detailed index makes it a simple matter to follow a particular field or process from its origin through its complete cross-cultural evolution. This is a reference as usefully accessible as it is inherently fascinating.
The content of this course focuses on exploring the world's political regions by examining the location, physical characteristics, population and culture, historical change, economic activity, and land use of various regions. This program introduces students to an enriched view of the interrelationships of geography, history, economics, government, citizenship, and current events-in one compelling package.

Severe weather events like hurricanes and tornadoes have increased fourfold in the last two decades, shaking the foundations of our existence. Weather-related tragedies have fascinated humans throughout time. For those who loved The Perfect Storm andKrakatoa, the millions who log onto daily weather forecasting sites and check weather apps, and people who can't get enough front-page headlines of global natural disasters.Earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados, floods, forest fires, blizzards, and thunderstorms: National Geographic explores the deadliest of these disasters throughout history and arms you with ways to protect yourself from chaos and destruction. From the 1906 earthquake that flattened San Francisco and the morbid 1889 flash flood that wiped out the entire town of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, to the Superstorm of 1993 that blanketed Florida in snow and the more recent East Coast and Gulf Coast ravages of hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, the destructive force and human tragedy both fascinates and horrifies. In addition to these gripping stories, NGS provides practical tips for surviving at home and weathering the lethal strength of these events if caught outside.
On the 100th anniversary of Titanic's sinking, National Geographic revisits the romance, glory, and tragedy of this tremendous ship and presents an insider's look at the new findings about the passengers and scientific study of the wreck site. For 100 years the great ship Titanic has rested in its final grave on the ocean floor, lost to deep ocean darkness until its 1985 discovery by National Geographic's Bob Ballard. Relive the spell-binding tragic final hours of the ship in a detailed retelling of the famous story and learn the personal stories of lesser-known passengers, including the "guarantees." For the first time since its discovery, Ballard travels to Belfast to interview descendants of the ship builders and the "guarantee group"--the ill-fated men who traveled on the ship's first voyage to assure its seaworthiness. Understand underwater mapping techniques that have brought Titanic's debris field into high resolution, and get a glimpse of current deep ocean scientific research on the wreckage and the future of underwater exploration.
This program introduces students to an enriched view of the interrelationships of geography, history, economics, government, citizenship, and current events--in one compelling package. A strong geographic thread is interwoven with history, government, and current events to analyze different regions of the world and the issues they face.
