Reviews
"Generally the chapters in Global Society are superior, because they do a better job of integrating the social and political history."

"The work is very well done and especially so for those who wish to impart to their students a sense of how a knowledge of the past helps bring about a stronger understanding of the present. It is far and away better than its competitors."
