Synopsis

The authors of VOYAGES IN WORLD HISTORY, International Edition never forget that history is made up of the stories of people. Each chapter of this new text centers around a story-a traveler's account that highlights the book's main theme, the constant movement of people, goods, and ideas-locally, regionally, and around the globe. Chapter introductions are illustrated with images of the travelers and maps that show where and how he or she traveled. The travelers include rulers, explorers, poets, merchants, soldiers, missionaries and scholars, and their narratives provide a framework for each chapter and draw students into the stories of world history. Along the way, students learn critical reading skills by evaluating the traveler's observations and attitudes.
