"The Earth And Its Peoples" is a truly global text for the world history course that employs a fundamental theme to compare different times, places, and societies: the interaction of human beings and the environment. Special emphasis is given to technology (in its broadest sense) and how technological development underlies all human activity. New to the third edition are: chapters 3 and 4 (from 200 to 250 B.C.E) completely reorganised for more cohesive presentation; expanded coverage of medieval Russia (including new map of Kievan Russia and the Byzantine Empire) and 19th century Russia; updated coverage of the most recent events and developments, including new maps on worldwide stresses on fresh water supplies, global economic and trade groups; diversity and Dominance - these two-paged boxed excerpts include one or two primary sources of substantial length. Each feature begins with an introduction that relates the topic to the Diversity and Dominance theme. Student are invited to explore the meaning and significance of the passage or images through a series of focus questions found at the end of the excerpt; and, "Environment and Technology" illustrated boxed feature that reinforces the central theme of the text by highlighting and comparing technological developments over time. Detailed, 4-colour maps and an extensive photo programme enrich the text. Chapter Openers include a coordinated essay, timeline, and a colour-coded work map that reinforce geography and comparative analysis.
