Summary

Bringing more than 50 years of combined teaching experience and expertise into WORLD CIVILIZATIONS, Philip J. Adler and Randall L. Pouwels present an accessible, comprehensive, and balanced global overview of the world's major civilizations from the ancient world to modern times. Well more than half of the content focuses on the world outside of Europe. As one of the most graphic and pedagogically driven books in the market, the text appeals to students and professors alike. Hundreds of illustrations, maps, and documents, overviews, self-tests, and additional rich pedagogical features make the history of world civilizations easier for students to study and understand. Fifty-six concise chapters make content manageable for students while giving instructors the flexibility to present the material in any way they choose. Available in the following split options: WORLD CIVILIZATIONS, FOURTH EDITION (Chapters 1-56), ISBN: 0534599338; WORLD CIVILIZATIONS, VOLUME I: TO 1700, FOURTH EDITION (Chapters 1-30), ISBN: 0534599346; WORLD CIVILIZATIONS, VOLUME II: SINCE 1500, FOURTH EDITION (Chapters 23-56), ISBN: 0534599354.
