MEDIA REVIEWS

"...well-written, civilizations-focused text that is accessible to students without talking down to them."

-Wayne Ackerson, SalisburyUniversity

"The "Global Perspective" feature is superb. It is an excellent way to put themes into a global context, which brings significance to the topics of study."

-Heather Barry, St. Joseph's College

"...a very good balance between topical, thematic, and chronological approaches. All three are necessary for students to derive the maximum value from the text."

-Dr. Anthony R. Santoro, ChristopherNewport University

"The greatest challenge my students usually face is how to deal with thematic and more complex ideas on a wide geographic & chronological range. This book helps that."

-Kristen Post Walton, SalisburyUniversity
