VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY, BRIEF EDITION, is a mainstream text for the world history course that masterfully uses the theme of movement--the journeys of peoples, ideas, and goods--to help the reader make sense of the huge range of people, places, and events throughout history. Each chapter is framed around the story of a person who traveled within the time period and region of the chapter. Students can practice being critical readers by evaluating the traveleras observations and attitudes. VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY includes a primary source feature called Movement of Ideas, which will help students develop the core skill of analyzing sources by allowing them to compare multiple explanations of significant ideas. This brief text will meet the needs of instructors who want a lively narrative style without sacrificing the themes and pedagogy that make world history understandable to students; it is also ideal for instructors who want to supplement a text with lots of primary sources. Available in the following options: VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY, BRIEF EDITION (Chapters 1-32); Volume I: To 1600 (Chapters 1-16); Volume II: Since 1500 (Chapters 15-32).
