Overview

REVEL for The Humanities: Culture, Continuity, and Change, Third Edition helps students to see context and make connections across the humanities, and to enjoy countless “ah-ha” moments as they piece together the cultural history of world. Believing that students learn best by remembering stories rather than memorizing facts, author Henry Sayre employs a narrative storytelling approach, deftly conveying multifaceted cultural experiences in a way that students can understand and will remember — throughout the course and beyond.
