Understanding Basic Statistics (Fourth Edition)

by Charles Henry Brase and Corrinne Pellillo Brase

Welcome to the exciting world of statistics! We have written this text to make statistics accessible to everyone, including those with a limited mathematics background. Statistics affects all aspects of our lives. Whether we are testing new medical devices or determining what will entertain us, applications of statistics are so numerous that, in a sense, we are limited only by our own imagination in discovering new uses for statistics.

Western Civilization (Combined Volume, 6th Edition)

by Jackson J. Spielvogel

The goal of this undergraduate text is to present a balanced work in which political, economic, social, religious, intellectual, cultural, and military aspects of Western civilization are integrated into a chronologically ordered synthesis. The latest research on social history and women's history is integrated, rather than isolated in separate chapters. For this sixth edition, Spielvogel (Pennsylvania State University) adds material reflecting current scholarship on everything from the Neolithic Age to the war in Iraq, and including considerable new material on the impact other parts of the world have had on the West. Pedagogical features include boxes of primary source documents, detailed chronologies, illustrated timelines, chapter outlines, critical thinking questions, and a glossary. The text's updated color maps feature detailed captions. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

World Civilizations

by Michael Adas and Peter N. Stearns and Stuart B. Schwartz and Marc Jason Gilbert

Designed for introductory-level survey courses in World History. The primary goal of "World Civilizations" is to present a truly global history--from the development of agriculture and herding to the present. Using a unique periodization, this book divides the main periods of human history according to changes in the nature and extent of global contacts.

This global world history text emphasizes the major stages in the interactions among different peoples and societies, while at the same time assessing the development of major societies. Encompassing social and cultural as well as political and economic history, the book examines key civilizations in world history.

"World Civilizations" balances this discussion of independent developments in the world's major civilizations with comparative analysis of the results of global contact.

Writing America

by David A. Jolliffe and Hephzibah Roskelly

We have designed Writing America: Language and Composition in Context AP* Edition so that it can be used as the foundational text in a course that emphasizes reading, writing, and analyzing texts. Writing America teaches reading as a dynamic, interactive process. It teaches writing as a craft, related to reading, that produces rich, purposeful, well-planned and well-executed texts. It teaches the structure and organization of texts, at the level of both the whole text and the sentence. It couches this instruction in an examination of vitally important works of American literature, art, and culture, accompanied by a study of contemporary pieces that unpack current thinking on the issues and themes raised by the historical works.
