Summary

This is Volume I (chapters 1-27) of WORLD CIVILIZATIONS, a text that offers students a comprehensive and balanced overview of the world's major civilizations, spanning from the ancient world to modern times. With more than half of the text devoted to non-Western civilizations, this Third Edition provides increased attention to modern-day Islam, pre-colonial Africa, the role of women throughout history, and the global effects of World War II on the various civilizations. Throughout, Philip Adler describes history as the story of how individuals have tried (with varying degrees of success) to meet their physical, emotional, and intellectual needs and desires. Coverage of wars and military affairs is secondary to coverage of the social and economic topics that form the basis of this text. Individual chapters average between 10-15 pages each, making the information manageable for students and making the text well-suited to the lecture format. WORLD CIVILIZATIONS contains many pedagogical features--including hundreds of maps and documents, overviews, self-tests, a comprehensive glossary, and an updated bibliography of materials commonly available in most university libraries--that make it easy for students to understand and remember key concepts. Available in the following split options: WORLD CIVILIZATIONS, Complete, Third Edition, ISBN: 0534599222; WORLD CIVILIZATIONS, Volume I, To 1600 (Chapters 1-27), ISBN: 0534601472; WORLD CIVILIZATIONS, Volume II, Since 1500 (Chapters 26-58), ISBN: 0534599230.
