520    "World Past to World Present: A Sketch of Global History 
       provides an unusually brief and present-focused treatment 
       of human history beginning with the advent of agriculture 
       and ending with considerable attention to world history 
       developments since World War II. This accessible and 
       concise text covers a very real but selected history of 
       the human experience. The book emphasizes the importance 
       of contacts and exchanges among different cultures and 
       economies up to contemporary globalization, and consistent
       attention is devoted to comparisons among major regional 
       societies. The characteristics of agricultural, and later 
       industrial, societies help establish a larger framework 
       within the text. Peter N. Stearns works to connect past 
       developments to contemporary global patterns and problems,
       explicitly balancing major changes with significant 
       continuities. Key features include: A "no-frills" approach
       to an expansive stretch of human history Encourages 
       students to understand the importance of studying history 
       by focusing on aspects of the past that are particularly 
       useful in assessing the current state of the world Invites
       instructors to combine the advantages of systematic 
       summary coverage with varied supplementary reading Nine 
       maps illustrate important movements and civilizations 
       throughout the world Truly international in coverage, this
       book has been specifically designed as a core text for 
       Global History survey courses"--|cProvided by publisher
