Documents in World History Volume 2 * Fifth Edition Peter N. Stearns * Stephen S. Gosch * Erwin P. Grieshaber Revised and updated with fourteen new documents and four new visual sources, the fifth edition of Documents in World History retains its global emphasis while improving its standard selections and political coverage, as well as expanding its coverage of Africa and the Middle East, including Persia. FEATURES OF THE FIFTH EDITION New Global Contacts sections address comparisons and contrasts among major societies, as well as key interregional connections at crucial points in time. The emphasis on contacts between societies clarifies the major world history themes found in the readings. New Essay Suggestions are designed to open the readings to wider scrutiny and connect each selection to larger interpretive themes in world history. Introductions for each section place the documents in a broad historical context and provide students with guidelines for analyzing readings. Study Questions at the end of each section allow students to text their understanding and encourage them to think critically. New study questions are now included with all maps. Visual Source features use images as historical sources and include introductions and questions to help students analyze and interpret the images. Pinyin spellings are now used in the coverage of China.
