In today's world of globalization, there is a growing trend among historians and students alike to study the common challenges and experiences that unite the human past. The seven-volume Encyclopedia of World History is truly a groundbreaking work and one of the first to offer a balanced presentation of human history for a global perspective on the past. A team of distinguished world history academics has brought together scores of specialists in writing signed entries based on the latest scholarship.
