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.

Kaleidoskop

by Barbara Mabee and Jack Moeller and Simone Berger and Winnifred R. Adolph

Kaleidoskop is essentially two books in one: a cultural and literary reader with a comprehensive review of grammar. This combination allows maximum flexibility for instructors to design their own programs. The 10 topics of the Lekt're section contain a variety of texts and activities, and the 10 Kapitel of the self-contained grammar section (Grammatik) allow instructors to work with the grammar topics in whatever order they choose; the grammar chapters may be treated independently of the reading chapters or used concurrently with the Themen of the same number. Given these materials the instructor can provide a learner-centered classroom with activities that lend themselves to cooperative learning. Kaleidoskop features a flexible four-skills, learner-centered approach that promotes communication and focuses on the literature and culture of the German-speaking world. Reading plays an important role in this text, with exercises for listening, speaking and writing revolving around the wide range of authentic reading selections. These texts are authentic and include advertisements, charts, newspaper and magazine articles, letters, e-mails, forum mails, polls, interviews, biographies, songs, poems, and fiction.

The Human Record To 1700

by Alfred J. Andrea and James H. Overfield

The Human Record is a leading collection of primary sources for world history courses and can be used as either a core or supplementary text. Unlike many world history texts that center on the West, The Human Record provides balanced coverage of the global past. The book features both written and artifactual sources placed in their full historical contexts through introductory essays, footnotes, and focus questions. Each volume in the Fifth Edition begins with a prologue-"Primary Sources and How We Read Them"-that introduces students to the proper methods for reading and interpreting primary source material; the authors also walk students through sample visual and textual sources to help them master this skill. Part, chapter, section, and individual source introductions help students place primary sources within a historical context. New! Approximately one-third of the selections in each volume are new to this edition, and many of the remaining sources contain updated explanations and focus questions. New! The final chapter in Volume II has been revised to include coverage of recent global events such as the September 11th attacks. "Questions for Analysis," which precede each source, are presented in a three-tiered format that resembles a historian s approach to source analysis. Each volume contains a Table of Contents organized by topical and geographical criteria. Several visual sources, such as photos of coins, sculptures, paintings, and textiles, are provided in each volume.
