Book Excerpt : For an accessible, comprehensive global survey of the world's major civilizations, Adler and Pouwels's WORLD CIVILIZATIONS offers a great balance between detail and brevity. This unique student-oriented text offers 53 short chapters accompanied by strong pedagogy and critical thinking tools, giving instructors the flexibility to assign a wide range of major topics in world history in a variety of different ways, while making learning more manageable for students. The focused treatment of topics throughout history covers every major epoch and follows broad patterns and processes, while illuminating history through specific examples and a particular emphasis on social and cultural topics. Among other updates, the eighth edition includes new content that illustrates how the world has become increasingly interdependent, gives more attention to the non-Western world and its peoples, and provides sharper focus on the importance of women in history.
