"This book presents world history accessibly and succinctly through key sites and cities, from Xi'an to Carthage to Potosi. It will work well together with the current textbooks that emphasize interaction and connections in world history. The authors draw students in to their subjects with accounts of their own personal engagement with their chosen site or city, an especially welcome feature." -J.R. McNeill, Georgetown University "Places of Encounter is an ideal text for an increasingly mobile college student body. Yet beyond giving students an appreciation for the diversity of places in human experience, the authors of Places of Encounter impress upon its readers the uniqueness of human experience across time and space. It is a valuable tool for stressing the singularity of human experience across the globe and throughout millennia." -Dr. Evan R. Ward, Brigham Young University
