World History: From Early Times to AD 2000
Providing a comprehensive introduction to world history, this book traces the origins of the earth and early humans, then traverses the rise and fall of ancient and classical civilizations, the birth of religions, aspects of medieval society and economy, the age of exploration, and ends with the colonization of Africa, Asia, and America. From there, the beginnings of the modern period are traced to the Renaissance in Europe, the religious Reformation, the Age of Reason, the Industrial Revolution, and the arrival of socialist ideas. With the breakup of the Soviet Union, the world has entered into a new stage of development—globalization and liberalization—which is examined in the final chapter.
