For courses in World History I (to 1500) and World History II (since 1500). Brief yet detailed, this text provides a thoughtful history of human civilizations while maintaining a balance between the Western world and the rest of global civilization. It covers the general intellectual and material history of human societies and cultures that have left some kind of written and/or archeological record behind. The combined edition is organized in a rough chronological order by cultural/ civilization and/or geographical areas.
