Through a thematic approach, this book effectively does that while providing insights into the world's social history.

For a college world history survey course, the book could provide an alternative to the standard 1,000 page text, if teachers are willing to provide background materials through an additional reader, lectures, and/or supplemental readings. (World history textbooks have their place but too often students lose sight of the larger patterns and processes in world history due to the level of detail and specificity that textbooks include.)
