Additional Book Details

Readable and concise, this Brief Edition of THE EARTH AND ITS PEOPLES: A GLOBAL HISTORY provides the essential narrative of world history in an abbreviated format. This global text employs the fundamental themes of “environment and technology” and “diversity and dominance” to explore patterns of humans' interactions with their surroundings and with each other. The authors' approach shifts the focus away from political centers and power, revealing how humanity continues to shape and be shaped by our environments, and how dominant structures and traditions are balanced and challenged by alternate beliefs. Special emphasis is given to technological development and how it underlies all human activity. Available in the following split options: THE EARTH AND ITS PEOPLES, Brief Sixth Edition (Chapters 1-30), ISBN: 978-1-285-44551-9; Volume I: To 1550 (Chapters 1-15), ISBN: 978-1-285-44552-6; Volume II: Since 1500 (Chapters 15-29), ISBN: 978-1-285-44553-3.
