Article for Undergrads on a rationale for World History

Hi Glenn, Suggest that you look at the book I recently published online with World History Connected. Topic is Understanding and Teaching Early Modern World History Through the Study of an Early Modern Mexican City. Just go to world history connected-search mounkhall-sections may work with your students. Tom Mounkhall

Article for Undergrads on a rationale for World History

I have recently discovered the first video of a series put out by Columbia University in 2010. The YouTube title is "Richard Bulliet - History of the World to 1500 CE (Session 1) - Introduction to World History" and the first 30 minutes is a really interesting background of the development of World History. It may be worth your time in watching and would certainly be accessible to undergrads. Yours, David Rands

JER Seeking Book Reviewers

Dear H-SHEAR Readers,

Jessica Chopin Roney and I have begun a three year term as co-editors of the book reviews section of the JER.  We have inherited the interested reviewers database but it is incomplete and out of date (Jess and I noted that neither of us is on it, for example).  If you are interested in reviewing for the JER please write to me at shankman@rutgers.edu and include your areas of interest and expertise.  We will add you to the database.


Thank you very much.

Article for Undergrads on a rationale for World History

Hi everyone:

I'm starting to work on fall courses.  I'm teaching a World history survey from roughly 1500 to 1750.  I'm looking for a new article to give to my (mostly) first year undergrads to introduce the idea of world history and to make the argument for doing world history.  I've used an older piece by Marshall Hodgson for a while but would like something a little more accessible.  Just curious if anyone has suggestions?  Thanks.
