Each of the 26 chapters is paired with extended readings, including articles from the Journal of World History, other scholarly journals and In The Balance: Themes in Global History. Together, the text materials and readings suggest the historiographical changes in the field and convey a sense that world history is a dynamic venture, enriched by its multiple perspectives.
