Summary

Compiled by a widely respected world historian and community college teacher, Worlds of History fosters historical thinking through thematic comparisons of primary and secondary sources from around the world. Each chapter takes up a major theme — such as patriarchy, love and marriage, or globalization — as experienced by two or more cultures.

"Thinking Historically" exercises build students’ capacity to analyze and interpret sources one skill at a time. This flexible framework accommodates a variety of approaches to teaching world history. The latest edition offers a broader range of sources with an even more global perspective.

Kevin Reilly is a professor of humanities at Raritan Valley College and has taught at Rutgers, Columbia, and Princeton Universities. Co-founder and first president of the World History Association, Reilly wrote The West and the World and has edited a number of works in world history including Readings in World Civilization and the World History syllabus collection. As a specialist in immigration history, Reilly was tapped to create the "Modern Global Migrations" globe at Ellis Island's Museum of the History of Immigration. His work on the history of racism led to the editing of Racism: A Global Reader. He was a Fulbright scholar in Brazil (1989) and Jordan (1994). In 1992, the Community College Humanities Association named him "Distinguished Educator of the Year."

Excellent Primary Source May 2, 2011

This two-volume reader is also attractive because it is smaller and more portable than most. The typeface is highly readable unlike in some other readers. All readings are numbered consecutively so they are easy to assign to students. Also, I'm sure I'm biased against it - I had no great love for historical documents to begin with. Someone more passionate than I will probably find this textbook pretty decent.
