REVEL for The World: A History interweaves two enduring stories—centered on our interactions with nature and with each other—into a compelling narrative of mankind, from the origins of civilization to the present. Employing an engaging prose style and a comprehensive map program that brings history to life, author Felipe Fernández-Armesto empowers students to see the connections among peoples and events, and to think critically about topics large and small.
