Ingrid Thulin, 21 september 2013
En STOR bok både innehållsmässigt och fysiskt. Men fantastiskt pedagogiskt upplagd och med tydliga avdelningar. Tydliga återkopplingar till tidigare fakta som man har hunnit glömma med sidoangivelser.

'A History of World Societies is comprehensive in scope and analysis, offering students well-chosen illustrations and maps and a highly readable narrative that prompts in-class discussion.' - K. David Goss, Gordon College, USA 'A History of World Societies is an elegantly written narrative that captures the voices of the human past. The highly respected teacher-scholars who authored the volumes adopt a unique world regional approach with special emphasis on social history and strike the proper balance between breadth and depth. The artful presentation and effective integration of written text and visual materials helps instructors promote history and the historian's craft. The textbook's gorgeous professional layout and diverse pedagogical activities keep students interested and are hallmarks of today's student-centered learning models.' - Matthew D. Esposito, Drake University, USA 'Its strengths are its engaging and often eloquent writing, the best maps of any textbook, useful special features, coverage in the text of individuals both famous and not famous, and balanced coverage.' - David S. Bovee, Fort Hays State University, USA 'The attention paid to gender issues, cross-cultural comparisons and connections, recent scholarship, and the use of art, maps, and boxed features makes A History of World Societies a valuable text. The regional approach is focused and less confusing to both students and instructors.' - Funso Afolayan, University of New Hampshire, USA 'A History of World Societies is a well researched, balanced account of the development of the major world civilizations that provides students with an excellent foundation for their understanding of these civilizations and their achievements.' - Jason M. Stratton, Bakersfield College, USA
