Summary

Societies, Networks, and Transitions is a world history text that connects the different regions of the world through global themes. This innovative structure combines the accessibility of a regional approach with the rigor of comparative scholarship to show students world history in a truly global framework. The text also features a strong focus on culture and religion. Author and veteran teacher Craig Lockard engages students with a unique approach to cultural artifacts such as music and art. A range of pedagogical features--including focus questions, section summaries, and web-based study aids--supports students and instructors as they explore the interconnectedness of different people, places, and periods in the global past.
