Designed to accompany McKay et al.’s A History of World Societies, each chapter of Sources of World Societies contains approximately six sources that present history from the perspectives of well-known figures and ordinary individuals alike. Now with visual sources and two more documents per chapter, this edition offers breadth and depth. Headnotes and questions supplement each document, while a new “Viewpoints” feature highlights two or three sources per chapter that address a single topic from different perspectives. Comparative questions ask students to make connections between sources and across time. Sources of World Societies is FREE when packaged with A History of World Societies.
