Distinguished by truly global coverage, this new survey helps us to discover the connections between past and present from earliest prehistory to the present age of globalization. Thematic chapters explore mobility and the interrelationship of peoples; their connections with the environment; the communities they form; the patterns of dominance and submission involved in the ways they organize themselves politically, economically, and socially; and the ways in which they construct and express cultures through ideas, religion, art, and architecture." "World History: Journeys from Past to Present will be an invaluable resource for students in college and university world history or world civilization courses and for anyone interested in a comprehensive framework for grasping world history."--book jacket." ;
