Analyzes the ancient Mediterranean and Middle East in social and cultural contexts

 

Ancient World, The: A Social and Cultural History Plus MySearchLab with eText -- Access Card Package, 8/e ,presents a comprehensive analysis of the cultures and societies of the ancient Mediterranean world from prehistoric times to the rise of Islam. It offers a multi-perspective and integrated chronicle of the history of the ancient world, from Sumer to the fall of Rome.

 

This title challenges purely narrative accounts of the ancient past, offering in-depth analysis of such key events and institutions as: the origins of agriculture and the rise of urban civilization in the Middle East; household and gender roles in the Middle East, Greece, and Rome; slavery throughout the Mediterranean; and how the Romans built, maintained, and lost their empire.

 

MySearchLab is a part of the Nagle program. Research and writing tools, including access to academic journals, help students understand ancient history in even greater depth. To provide students with flexibility, students can download the eText to a tablet using the free Pearson eText app.
