Summary

True to its title, this uniquely integrated text highlights the stories and themes in world history that tied cultures and regions together, and in some cases, drove them apart. In this second edition, the book's non-Eurocentric approach continues with expansions of the original eleven world history "turning point" stories from the modern period to include ten more "turning point" stories from the earlier periods of world history. From the history of the world's first cities built on the great rivers of Afro-Eurasia, to the formation of the Silk Road, to the rise of nation-states, and the story of modern globalization, "Worlds Together, Worlds Apart" provides students with the stories that changed history and enables them to make the connections they need in order to better understand how the world came to be what it is today.
