Written from a truly global perspective, this narrative tells the story of human events on the move--the exciting "event history" of wars and politics, booms and busts, the rise and fall of empires, and more. It also reaches beyond the events that have shaped world history to trace the broader development of human institutions and ideas as they evolve through time. Coverage of both events and broader trends is presented as part of major global movements, through the lives of the people who lived them, and as succinctly and vividly as possible. The author has made a substantial effort to restructure this fifth edition ofThe Human Venturewith emphasis on classroom use, student appeal, and clarifying the broad patterns of human history. New features include: Reorganization to a thirty-chapter format. New "Glance Ahead" chapter openers to introduce main themes early on. Many new "Voices from the Past" boxes to make some of these long-vanished people "come alive." New timelines in each section and a number of new maps and photos.Anthony Esler Professor Emeritus is the author of 'The Human Venture: A Global History, Volume 2 (since 1500) (5th Edition)', published 2003 under ISBN 9780131835474 and ISBN 0131835475.
