Coverage of both events and broader trends is presented (a) as part of still larger global movements, (b) through the lives of the people who lived it, and (c) as succinctly and vividly as possible. The combined volume explores ancient civilizations of both the old-world center (3500-200 BCE) and Asia, Africa, and the Americas (2500-200 BCE)- classical civilizations (500 BCE-CE 500) and expanding cultural zones around the world (500-1500)- the world in balance (1350-1600)- intercontinental empires (1500-1900)- wars, revolutions, and dictatorships (1900-1945)- and the cold war, collapsing empires, and globalization (1945-2000).

For those interested in World History, Comparative History, Humanities and Civilization as well as Multicultural Studies.
