This new volume in the acclaimedHistory of Humanityseries combines an extensive survey of the rise of the West during the Early Modern era with coverage of concurrent developments among peoples in every region of the globe. The work includes an impressive array of reference tools such as line drawings, maps, an extensive index and a bibliography at the end of each chapter. Structure: The volume is divided into two main parts. The first is thematic, discussing the geography, chronology and sociology of cultural change in this period. The second is regional, and stresses cultural diversity, the links between different activities in a given region, and the importance of social contexts and local circumstances. The final volumes in theHistory of Humanityseries will be published later this year.Save 10% off each volumewhen you place a standing order!
