Exchanges: Pearson New International Edition

For undergraduate or graduate courses in World History This impressive collection of readings illustrates that the history of the world is as much about the relationships among societies as it is about transformations and continuities within societies. Exchanges: A Global History Reader is designed as an introduction to the discipline of world history. Unlike other source collections, Exchanges helps students look beyond strictly delineated regionalism and chronological structures to understand history as a product of ongoing debate. Structured around a series of interconnected themes and debates, and pairing both primary and secondary sources, Exchanges challenges both students and teachers to rethink history. Praise for Exchanges: A Global History Reader The authors have successfully produced a text that will allow students to explore the ways in which historical writing hasgenerated important debates about world history.... It offers a rich and diverse compilation of reading materials that providestudents with ideas about world history, but also with models of historical writing.... Moreover, it offers examples from a widerange of geographical areas, something that will help broaden the horizons of the average student.Esperanza Brizuela-Garcia, Montclair State UniversityThe method of placing competing narratives side by side is one of the best strategies for demonstrating the nature of history asan interpretation.... I am very excited about the possibilities that this text could provide for transforming my World Civilizationscourse. An attentive student will find his or her basic assumptions challenged on every page, and it is this kind of intellectualtransformation that I seek to facilitate as a teacher.Carolyn R. Dupont, Eastern Kentucky UniversityI think this textbook goes a long way toward helping students to think more deeply and more historically about the state of theworld today.... The fact that the book is focused upon the five big questions of world history is a great plus. Too many worldhistory readers have a diffuse focus and dont really add up to a book that promotes sustained, focused inquiry.Mark Jones, Central Connecticut State UniversityI would describe the book as an introduction to being a world historian. Through a selection of thematic case studies,students are able to compare theories, test historians interpretations against the primary evidence, and access the rangeof material that allows them to develop their own interpretations of the worlds they inhabit and inherit.Lesley Mary Smith, George Mason UniversityExchanges focuses more than any other reader on the interconnectedness of regions and the debates pertaining to the newworld history.... The authors successfully demonstrate that history is contested to this day. Not only is this a more accurateportrayal of historical scholarship than most readers provide, it is also more interesting for the students, who are more likelyto appreciate history if they see it as contested, often for reasons closely connected with the state of the world today.A. Martin Wainwright, University of Akron
