Cengage Advantage Books: The Earth and Its Peoples: A Global History, 5e, offers the same outstanding scholarship and narrative as its full-color, hardcover counterpart, but presents it in a smaller, sleeker format.

The Earth and Its Peoples: A Global History, 5e, presents world history in a balanced, global framework, shifting the focus away from political centers of power. This truly global text for the world history survey course employs fundamental themes of "environment and technology" and "diversity and dominance" to explore patterns of human interaction with their surroundings and with each other. The authors' approach reveals how humanity continues to shape and be shaped by the environment and how dominant structures and traditions are balanced and challenged by alternate beliefs, Special emphasis is given to technological development and how it underlies all human activity.
