Praise for The World
“Those students who read The World with the care it deserves will not only gain a rich appreciation of the astonishing trajectory of our species and the biosphere that nourished us; they will also find themselves thinking deeply about issues likely to dominate the global politics of the next few decades.”
David Christian, The Journal of Global History
“No other text does as good a job as The World in giving students an understanding of global connections, and providing them with a solid framework to compare the cultural, political and social histories of different civilizations, societies and states.”
Steve Ortega, Simmons College
My students sound Fernández-Armesto’s style readable and entertaining. Several noted that it was unlike any history textbook they had ever seen. The color maps and photos are excellent, and the story at the beginning of each chapter helped draw the students into each period.
Matt Hopper, California Polytech State University
“Fernández-Armesto has chosen maps and pictures that stimulate debate and questions, and which also illuminate the topics at hand.”
Chad Ross, East Carolina University
“The World’s seamless integration of social, cultural, political, economic, and geographic considerations allows for flexible pedagogy and the course emphasis to shift and unfold as desired by the instructor.”
Karen Kimball, University of Maine–Machias
“The World not only treats the appropriate issues of a comparative, global approach to world history, it does so in a style that is convincing, clearly structured, and a pleasure to read.”
Donald Abbott, San Diego Mesa College
“The World provides excellent models and examples of how the arts can be integrated into historical investigation by providing and analyzing specific artifacts in their cultural context. Moreover, it integrates nomadic peoples into the larger human experience and demonstrates the variety of human experience other texts neglect. Finally The World includes numerous sources that offer comparative, contemporary views of events and peoples that spark lively classroom discussions.”
Marie Hooper, Oklahoma City University
