Patterns of World History

Brief Third Edition, Volume Two

Peter von Sivers, Charles A. Desnoyers, and George B. Stowe

  • Provides a framework for studying world history by emphasizing the role of innovation and historical change through patterns of origins, interactions, and adaptations
  • A broad, flexible organization allows the enormous sweep and content of the past to be viewed in a comprehensible narrative, with sound analysis and ample scope for debate and discussion
  • Each part of the book addresses the role of change and innovation on a broad scale in a particular time and/or region
  • "Seeing Patterns" and "Thinking Through Patterns" use a question-discussion format in each chapter to pose several broad questions and examine these questions in a sophisticated yet student-friendly manner
  • "Against the Grain" essays at the end of each chapter examine alternatives and contradictions to the main patterns explored in the chapter
  • Embedded primary sources in the "Patterns of Evidence" section at the end of each chapter enhance student engagement with key chapter patterns through contemporaneous voices and perspectives
