Overview

World Civilizations: The Global Experience presents a truly global approach to world history by discussing and comparing major societies and focusing on their interactions. Authors Peter Stearns, Michael Adas, Stuart Schwartz, and Marc Gilbert facilitate analysis of global contacts, regional patterns, and the whole process of change and continuity on a world stage. This emphasis on critical analysis helps you become an active learner rather than a passive consumer of historical facts.
