A really good text, although like all American text books terribly overpriced. Great illustrations though and nice writing. Best thing is that it is one of few world history books that does treat the globe as a connected whole and looks at globalising (and antiglobalising) forces rather than just collection a whole lot of national histories into a 'world history'. Good maps as well are a bonus. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393934934, Paperback)

The most global approach to world history, now more streamlined and accessible.

Worlds Together, Worlds Apart is organized around major world history stories and themes: the emergence of cities, the building of the Silk Road, the spread of major religions, the spread of the Black Death, the Age of Exploration, alternatives to 19th-century capitalism, the rise of modern nation-states and empires, and more. In the Third Edition, the text has been compressed and streamlined to heighten emphasis on world history stories and themes throughout.
