The book explores the common challenges and experiences that unite the human past.
This is a textbook that not only speaks for the past but speaks to today's student and today's teacher. The book explores the common challenges and experiences that unite the human past. The Earth and Its Peoples is a truly global text that employs a fundamental theme, the interaction of human beings and the environment, as a point of comparison for different times, places, and societies.
Although this brief edition is two-thirds the length of its full-length counterpart, it retains coverage of all major themes and provides a truly global perspective on world history, without over-emphasizing Europe or the U. S. The Earth and Its Peoples focuses on the interaction of human beings and the environment, using this central theme to compare different times, places, and societies. Special emphasis is given to technology and how technological development underlies all human activity. Ideal for one-semester survey courses or courses for which instructors want to supplement their textbook with many primary sources, this text has been carefully abbreviated to maintain the essential narrative of world history. Key pedagogical elements have also been retained.
