    Tired of your students not reading the textbook? Strayer and Eric W. It does not cover every place and time, which makes it relatively short and accessible. These essays help dispel the idea that any account of the past is truly definitive and instead promote the notion of history texts as works in progress that can be challenged.

Nelson provide an insightful, big picture synthesis that helps students discern what matters most in world history--patterns and variations on both global and regional levels and continuity and change over time.

    Students experience first-hand the process of reading historical evidence and making historical arguments. Developed with extensive feedback from history instructors and students, LaunchPad includes the complete narrative e-book, as well as abundant primary documents, maps, images, assignments and activities. These enriched source projects include new sources such as images of Aboriginal rock art, an account from Chinese historian Sima Qian, graffiti of Pompeii, poetry from the early Islamic world, an excerpt from the Lindisfarne Gospel, Machiavelli on the Turkish state, a document on coffeehouse culture in the Ottoman Empire, a Socialist song, an Ethiopian response to colonialism, a Japanese propaganda poster, documents from Mexican feminists, a photograph of protest against the French ban of the burqa, and more. Lewis starts his book with a quick history of the origins of Islam, and this was fascinating to me - coming from a childhood of Catholic catechism classes, it was amazing that so much is known about Muhammad I'm spelling the name as Lewis does in his book as a historical figure, and I was excited and fascinated by all the information Lewis provides about the founder of Islam. New Controversies essays highlight debates about key historical issues: the beginnings of history, the origins of major religious traditions, the nature of empires, the idea of the Atlantic World, the Industrial Revolution, and the concept of globalization.
