Overview

World since 1500: A Global History / Edition 7

This best-selling, classic exploration of world history takes an interdisciplinary global (rather than a regional or national) approach—tracing those major forces, movements, and events that have had a world-wide impact. Concentrating on global history since 1500, this seventh edition stresses connections between the past, present and future, emphasizing the question "What does it mean for us today?".
