Understanding World Societies is a well-written, brief text based on solid scholarship. Each chapter incorporates an innovative student study guide that has real potential for taking students deep into the complexities of history.

The structure of the chapters in Understanding World Societies is outstanding. The main section questions, quick review questions at the end of each section, timelines, well selected visuals, and visually appealing design make this a uniquely user-friendly text. My students will find it easier to do the textbook reading assignments and have a higher probability of being able to focus on major issues rather than wallowing in an endless series of facts. This is an excellent textbook.
