Overview

The Earth and Its Peoples: A Global History, Volume A: To 1200 / Edition 6

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.
