World in the Making

Volume One to 1500

Second Edition

Author Bonnie G. Smith, Marc Van De Mieroop, Richard von Glahn, and Kris Lane

  • Lives and Livelihoods features reinforce the book's superior social and cultural coverage and unique global/local approach.
  • Author teams of world history textbooks typically divide the work based on geographic specialty, but the author team of World in the Making define their subject matter by time period. This organization enables them to see connections or parallel developments that make societies part of world history-as well as the distinctive features that make them unique. This approach also ensures a unified perspective to the many stories that each part tells.
  • Counterpoint sections reveal that alternative histories have always existed alongside "master narratives."
  • Reading the Past and Seeing the Past features provide direct exposure to important voices and ideas of the past through written and visual primary sources.
  • Opening vignettes draw students into the atmosphere of the period and introduce the chapter's main themes.
  • Backstory sections remind students of where they last encountered the peoples discussed in the chapter.
  • Overview Questions frame the main issues to consider while reading, while Focus Questions guide students' comprehension and promote close reading and dynamic class discussion.

New to this Edition:

  • Doing History. This new feature, located in the Review section at the end of each chapter, prompts students to consider the skills that world historians employ. Tied to the content in each chapter and organized around seven key concepts, Doing History shows students the reasoning processes historians use to construct the historical past.
  • New Features. The second edition presents several new Lives and Livelihoods, Seeing the Past, and Reading the Past features, including insights into religious practices in Stone Age Turkey (Chapter 1); ecology, production, and power in the Hawaiian Islands (Chapter 10); domestic life in Byzantium (Chapter 11); and views of Alexander the Great in the East and West (Chapter 12).
  • New Counterpoint sections. Many instructors have incorporated the text's unique Counterpoint sections into their teaching. These new ones are included in the second edition: The Prophets of Israel and Judah (Chapter 5); Jewish Merchant Communities in Latin Christendom; (Chapter 11); Sufism in South Asia (Chapter 13).
  • New chapter opening vignettes and new scholarship. Chapter 1 includes the latest research on human evolution and early human history, including a new vignette on the discovery of the oldest footprints outside of Africa. Chapter 3 includes substantially revised information on the Oxus people spotlighted in that chapter's Counterpoint section. Chapter 6 presents a revised discussion on the Roman Republic. Chapter 13 now opens with an account from Usamah ibn Minqidh that offers a Muslim view of Crusaders.
