This condensed history of the cultural encounters and exchanges that have played a significant role in the development of world history is derived from Bentley and Ziegler's best-selling and all-encompassing survey program. Traditions & Encounters: A Brief Global History provides an overview of these topics. Students are provided with a more straightforward and focused educational experience when the vast subject matter of world history is framed through the lens of the human experience.
The interesting story told by Bentley is now available in the form of a personalized eBook called SmartBoo, which asks students to demonstrate that they understand what they are reading at various points throughout the text. Additionally, it is supported by interesting digital tools, such as interactive maps, that encourage critical thinking and the retention of key concepts covered in the course.
