"Focuses on global history as a history of encounters rather than separate civilizations, walking a fine line between reinforcing a Eurocentric view of history and describing earlier periods of Islamic or Chinese expansion. It uses a comparative approach and attempts to strike a balance between narrative and analysis in its coverage of the first modern societies and Europe's expansion in the Middle East, India, Asia, and Africa. Includes b&w photos and diagrams. "
