Overview

Featuring a beautiful new design, THE EARTH AND ITS PEOPLES, Sixth Edition, presents world history in a balanced, global framework, shifting the focus away from political centers of power. This truly global world history book employs a fundamental theme-the interaction of human beings and the environment-to compare different times, places, and societies. Special emphasis is given to technology (in its broadest sense) and how technological development underlies all human activity.

    Informative, but not deep

    I am a 9th grader, and we had to use this book for World History to 1600 (in other words, medieval history). In any textbook that can cover a global hisory, -- not just Europe -- some things must be left out. This book is very fair in giving each civilization a close to equal amount of space. However, many facts must be condensed in order to do this. Our teacher has us outline some pages, and very often, we end up almost copying the full text of the book. For us freshmen, this book can be a challenge to read. I mean, it covered all of Rome in about 10 pages! If you are looking for global history, based on research, and not solely on the textbook, I reccommend this to you. If you want to specifically look at a culture (Europe, China, Islam), this book is not the best choice. I hope my review helped. Good karma.

    Good Book, just not enough detail

    I am using this book for my ap world history class in school...although the book is easily read, the text only gives a base for learning, but fails to build on the subject.
