Revel™ The Humanities: Culture, Continuity, and Change leads students on a journey through countless “ah-ha” moments as they piece together the cultural history of the world. Believing that students learn best by remembering stories rather than memorizing facts, author Henry Sayre deftly conveys multifaceted cultural experiences via a storytelling approach that students will remember — during the course and beyond. Updated with numerous new images and examples, the 4th Edition analyzes recent works such as Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton: An American Musical to help students see how course concepts can help them understand resonant contemporary works.
Revel is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.
NOTE: Revel is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone Revel access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Revel.
