DescriptionPatterns of World History, Brief Edition offers a distinct framework for understanding the global past through the study of origins, interactions, and adaptations in a streamlined format that is 20% shorter than its parent text. Presenting the same core features, organization, and approach of the comprehensive text, authors Peter von Sivers, Charles A. Desnoyers, and George B. Stow examine the full range of human ingenuity over time and space in a comprehensive, even-handed, and critical fashion.
- Seeing Patterns, a list of key questions at the beginning of each chapter, focuses students on the 3-5 over-arching patterns, which are revisited, considered, and synthesized at the end of the chapter in Thinking Through Patterns.
- Each chapter includes a Patterns Up Close case study that brings into sharp relief the O-I-A pattern using a specific idea or thing that has developed in human history
