With 83 additional outline and four-color maps, World Civilizations: The Global Experience, Fifth Edition, Atlas Edition, helps students with geography, one of the most difficult aspects of World history courses for many. The maps are accompanied by review questions that call on students to identify important geographical areas and think critically about the connection between geography and historical events. The maps are on perforated pages and are organized by chapter so that they can be assigned easily and collected. The primary goal of World Civilizations is to present a truly global history--since the development of agriculture and herding to the present. Using a unique periodization, this book divides the main periods of human history according to changes in the nature and extent of global contacts. This global world history text emphasizes the major stages in the interactions among different peoples and societies, while also assessing the development of major societies. Presenting social and cultural as well as political and economic aspects, the book examines key civilizations in world history.World Civilizations balances this discussion of independent developments in the world's major civilizations with comparative analysis of the results of global contact.

The importance of buying textbooks online relates to condition of the book, price, and speed of delivery. Alibris saved me over half of the cost of buying the book new, and although there were a few highlight marks in the book, it was in excellent condition (sturdy binding, smooth clean pages, neat covers) and delivery was very fast. I would shop used texts her first!
