The World gives students the whole story. It is a new kind of history text -- not just a collection of facts and figures. World renowned historian, world respected scholar, successful author of more than 25 books translated into 22 languages, and exceptional writer, author Felipe Fernandez-Armesto offers a truly holistic narrative of the world, from human beginnings to the present. All aspects of the text -- from the exceptionally clear narrative that always places the story in time, to the unparalleled map program, to the focused pedagogical features -- support the story. Because of the author's breadth of vision, students will come away with a deep understanding of the fundamental interrelationships -- among peoples and their environments -- that make up the world's story.

David Ringrose, respected World Historian from the University of California--San Diego, served as The World's editorial consultant, and provided extensive teaching tips in the Instructor's Guide to Teaching the World.
