Traditions & Encounters offers an inclusive vision of the global past―one that is meaningful and appropriate for the interdependent world of contemporary times. Given the diversity of human societies, gathering and organizing the sheer mass of information in a meaningful way is a daunting challenge for any world history survey course. The seven-part chronological organization enables students to understand the development of the world through time, while also exploring broader, big-picture thematic issues in world history.

Connect students to the stories of history. Connect students to the experience of history. Connect students to success in history.At McGraw-Hill, we have dedicated the past few years to deepening our understanding of student and instructor experience. Employing a wide array of research tools including surveys, focus groups, and ethnographic studies, we've identified areas in need of improvement to provide an opportunity for greater learning and teaching experiences. The fifth edition of Traditions & Encounters is a result of this.Traditions & Encounters also has a rich history of firsts: the first world history text to take a truly global perspective on the past; the first to emphasize connections among cultures; the first to combine twin themes with a seven-part framework, making the huge story of world history more manageable to both teach and learn.Now Traditions & Encounters becomes the first truly interactive world history program: one that marries groundbreaking adaptive diagnostics and interactivities with a captivating narrative and engaging visuals, creating a unique learning environment that propels greater student success and better course results. Instructors gain insight into students' engagement and understanding as students develop a base of knowledge and construct critical thinking skills. Chapter-opening vignettes and a lively narrative keep students turning the page while the adaptive questioning for each chapter and the personalized study plan for each individual student help students prepare for class discussions and course work.With its hallmark of twin themes, Traditions & Encounters continues to tell the story of the cultures and interactions that have shaped world history, while adding redesigned maps, new primary sources, and new chapter- and part-level features that strengthen connections and prompt students to analyze the events and themes in order to build a greater understanding of the past and an appreciation of history's influence on the present. Students are no longer simply reading; they are reading, interacting, and engaging in a visual, auditory, and hands-on learning experience.Give students an experience. Improve course participation and performance. Experience Traditions & Encounters, and experience success.

Let's simplify this into a pro/con format

Pros:
-Well assembled, full paged material with insightful photographs
-Matte texture to minimize light reflection
-Lay-flat design
-Decently priced and available for rent

Cons:
-The writing is absolutely bland and vanilla. Sure, we know that we all emigrated from the mid-eastern region over the course of 60k years. This book does nothing different to illustrate this point nor to provide any meaning to it. The maps are the same maps I've seen in my other classes and even resembles of some material found in high-school texts.

-This book needs footnotes for the amount of claims it makes. 'The people of Austrailia used a rudimentry canoe system to navigate from what is now Ginuea to the main continent'

-The authors found it appropriate to provide shifty arguments as to why religion isn't valid. Sure, that's your viewpoint, but nowhere else in the text is this kind of counterpoint style exerted.

I just wanted to get the required textbook for my kid in a hurry. It came in a hurry, alright - practically the next day - so I was very happy about that. I love that the seller was very honest about the kind of condition it was in. My kid is going to be hard on it (throws it in a backpack and it gets banged around), so I didn't care about imperfections. Good value.

I never did get used to the way this book was put together. It seemed rather Hodge podge. It wasn't in chronological order of the years, I would think that I was understanding a subject and then I realized I had been moved into a different century. It was frustrating.

Rented it. Came in good quality.

Im sure the book is fine but it came in extremely poor condition so I hope I am not charged for this upon returning it.

Bought this book for college and even though the semester has not started yet I am impressed with it. It has been interesting to thumb through so far and has a great layout. Unlike some history books that are endless boring text, this one has graphics and pictures too and it is written so that it is actually interesting.

Love it. Wish it wasn't Kindle, but the content is great.
Read this for a college history class. It was interesting without a lot of bias.
