This was one of my textbooks for a world history course I took at Washington State University. It is now one of my favorite history books. There are many biased accounts that counterargue each other, which makes it an interesting read. The reader can take the biased accounts and synthesize their own ideas and conclusions. My favorite parts in the book are the accounts of Easter Island, the Black Death, and the various sections on religion's effects on various civilizations and societies.
