Documents in Global History provides both a rich collection of textual and visual documents in world history and an indispensible tool for working with sources. Extensively developed with the guidance of historians and teachers of world history, Primary Source provides over 300 text documents in global history and over 450 visual sources.Many of the visual sources--ranging from early stone tools to medieval world maps to twenty-first century satellite imagery--are available in digital format for the first time and can be closely examined using a zoom function.All sources are accompanied by headnotes and focus questions and are searchable by theme, region, time period, or textbook in use. In addition, an interactive tutorial, "Reading Primary Sources," guides students through the process of working with documents through a four-step process: analyzing authorship determining audience identifying argument historical significance
