Civilization Past and Present has a strong European core with excellent global coverage and is well known in the marketplace as a highly readable, accessible survey text. This is important since students often complain that they are overwhelmed with too much content in this course. The main thrust of the revision is to make the book more inclusive of areas beyond Europe. With two new authors, an Annotated Instructors Edition, a new, unique feature that focuses on primary maps, a beautiful new four-color design, and a premiere supplements package on the market, this edition of Civilization Past and Present offers students and professors an accessible and exciting survey of World Civilization. For the first time, we will be adding an Annotated Instructors Edition, which will provide numerous useful teaching suggestions and ideas. The Annotated Instructors Edition is unique in this market and will prove invaluable to professors who invariably end up teaching parts of the course which are out of their area of expertise since the course is so broad. This edition is available electronically on CD-ROM that includes the entire text, study guide, videos, web links, maps, charts, and photos. Free when bundled, this exciting new multimedia learning tool is easy to navigate and makes reading the textbook fun. Students will love how simple it is to take notes online, search for a topic, create a binder of documents, take practice tests, and watch historical videos.
