--Ron Lowe, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

“The coverage of the central themes, events, cultures, and civilizations is excellent.” -- Gene Barnett, Calhoun Community College
“This textbook has a nice balance of political narrative and social history, reminding students of the broader themes of world history as well as introducing some of the more interesting stories. It has all of the pedagogical support instructors expect in a textbook.” –Kelly Kennington, Auburn University
