The Earth and Its Peoples is a truly global text that employs a fundamental theme—the interaction of human beings and the environment—as a point of comparison for different times, places, and societies. Special emphasis is given to technology and how technological development underlies all human activity. The text has been rewritten to improve coverage of the early Americas, Russia, the Enlightenment, the Renaissance, and the Industrial Revolution. The Second Edition is full color, which provides more effective maps and a colorful new part opener design. The part opener includes a brief narrative overview with a relief map and timeline that outline major historic events.
