A narrative exploration of world history and cultures
Civilizations Past and Present presents a survey of world history, treating the development and growth of civilization as a global phenomenon involving the interaction of all of the world’s cultures. The text includes all the elements of history — social, economic, political, military, religious, aesthetic, legal, and technological — to illustrate this global interaction. The 13th Edition has been substantially revised and made more concise while emphasizing world trends and carefully avoiding placing these trends within a Western conceptual basis.
