Let's see. I don't like this book much. Did it teach me the events and the important stuff? Yes. In that it served its purpose.

However, it's so busy selling the message of cultural acceptance and blending that it doesn't go very far into the consequences of what happens when it doesn't happen. It somehow loses its message and value because it harps on cultural blending so much. That's the first half of the book. It actually goes into positive aspects of invasions in that it blended the invading

Recommends it for: no one that wants to understand history
I think history is one of the hardest things to teach- history is sometimes a mystery, always moving and never stopping, and most importantly history is BIASED. History couldn't exist without some opinions. And so now onto this book. It's a school textbook I used in 9th grade and am finishing in 10th grade. Yeah. Fortunately for me, my teacher goes beyond way beyond the textbook and teaches at a college level which helps educate us, but in truth this book just brushes the surface of history prov ...more

Used this book for an entire year of freshman World History. The textbook in person is extremely heavy but the information it provides helped me write many essays complete various other projects throughout the year. If you are a teacher, I'd recommend using the online version of the textbook. Again, the actual textbook is quite large and very heavy (many of my peers got tired of lugging it around in their bags all day so a few months in they stopped taking it). Decent textbook in the end of it a ...more

One of the few things I thoroughly enjoyed bringing back from an otherwise-dull-and-dispiriting "teach AP world history" training session. This is a fabulous (and fabulously HEAVY) text book that divides eras and nations into bite-sized, colourful chunks. It wouldn't be my first choice as a classroom text, but it's an extremely valuable supplementary source...especially for maps. When I need something succinct and to-the-point, I reach for this volume.

This textbook was definitely very informational. It helps with homework and is great to use to study for tests. The index and glossary are very easy to use and follow. The word choice in this book is perfect for our grade. It is easy to understand. Difficult words are often put into the glossary and the definition is on the same page as the word as well.

The book is well organized and gives a lot of information about important events in world history. However, the book mainly focuses on the successes of the Caucasian race. It should have a wider spectrum and discuss other races more thoroughly. As a future educator I look forward to working with it because it will provide at least the basics for my students.

Very helpful in homeworks. For Global History, we are assigned almost every night to read a certain chapter and take notes. I personally like history so this book is a 5 star. Through 9th to 10th, i've been using this book.

With over 1000 pages of short stories the book is quite literally packed with information although it is quite lacking in a plot line. The characters however are highly developed and include China, India, and the Mongols
