New Historians' Voices features help students consider secondary sources with a critical eye. Offered once at the end of every chapter, each Historians’ Viewpoint includes two short passages from scholarly works that offer different perspectives of the topic covered in the Thinking through Sources primary source feature. Designed to be used independently or in conjunction with the related primary sources, students reading Historians’ Viewpoints learn how historians consider evidence and arrive at their conclusion. Through accompanying questions students can engage in their own analysis.

Two new source projects and over fifty new sources bring new subjects to the forefront. Chapters 22 and 23 have been reorganized and revised to provide a better focus on the effects of technology and globalization, two important topics that feature in everyday life today, and not just in history. The new sources include secondary sources and a variety of new visual and written primary sources to help expand on other topics in history with new points of view and experiences.
