Sources of World History: Readings for World Civilization, Volume 1
Mark A. Kishlansky, Susan Lindsey Lively
Thompson/Wadsworth, Mar 26, 2002 - History - 408 pages
Edited by Mark Kishlansky, this reader is designed to supplement world civilization textbooks and lectures with a rich array of primary source materials. These materials include constitutional documents, political theory, philosophy, imaginative literature, and social description. Opting for longer selections that allow students to gain a deeper sense of authors and their texts, the editor has chosen each selection because of its ability to raise a significant issue around which classroom discussions or lectures can evolve. This reader contains works that are representative of major civilization complexes (Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Islamic world, and Western civilization). It is an ideal complement to Adler, WORLD CIVILIZATIONS, Third Edition; Upshur et al., WORLD HISTORY, Fourth Edition; Duiker/Spielvogel, THE ESSENTIAL WORLD HISTORY; and Duiker/Spielvogel, WORLD HISTORY, Third Edition.
