A People's History of the World

Since 1400

Author Jeff Horn

  • Provides a uniquely flexible account of global history that encourages both teachers and students to reconsider and ask new questions about the nature and cause of change.
  • Focuses on an understanding of the global past and its impact on the present through the way "the people" lived and acted.
  • Employs three temporal approaches to structure the analysis and to reveal patterns, conjunctures, and critical moments or tipping points.
  • Chapters on religious practice, community, slavery, agriculture, trade, and taxation span the entire six-hundred-year period. Paired chapters on imperialism, industrialization, and decolonization divide the era in two to highlight continuities and changes while five chapters focusing on politics examine shorter blocks of time.
  • The "Be A Historian" feature introduces certain types of primary sources and illustrates the difficulties of interpreting them. Considering how to weigh historical evidence, especially contradictory evidence is one of historians' most important skills. Since world history is frequently the only college history course a student takes, even brief exposure to what historians do and how they do it can help attract students to the discipline, while simultaneously encouraging an appreciation of both the art and the craft of the practice of history.
  • The "Debate" feature facilitates student understanding of complex material and helps them to improve skills. Introduced through a short framing section, each debate is linked to both the primary sources and the chapter narrative.
  • Adopters of the text can download Oxford Learning Link Direct into their LMS, integrating tests, PowerPoints, and other resources directly into their course.
  • Maps and images are integrated thoroughly into the narrative and represent an essential part of the story.
  • Whenever possible, the text uses the words of individuals who experienced or witnessed the event or issue under discussion. This approach applies to the quotes and short excerpts found in the text as well as to the companion sourcebook of primary sources, Voices of a People's History of the World.
  • Offers an enhanced e-book that includes all of the primary sources from Voices of a People's History of the World, quizzes, discussion questions videos, and notetaking guides.
  • Adopters of the text can download Oxford Learning Link Direct into their LMS, integrating tests, PowerPoints, and other resources directly into their course.
