Adventures in World History examines a variety of human experiences in world history, from earliest times to the present. Written more as a lively narrative than as a traditional textbook, students are presented with a wide range of thematically organized social, cultural, economic, and political topics, including mythology and religion, piracy, torture and execution, and natural disasters. This accessible but information-rich resource aims to cultivate student interest in historical experience and allow them to practise their skills of historical analysis.

  • Modular Organization: Adventures uses a section-by-section approach in which historical topics are presented in self-contained 2–4 page spreads. These short bursts of "digestible” information are less overwhelming, more manageable, and easier, for students to review.
  • A Story-Telling Approach: Respected writer and historian Nathan Greenfield employs a lively, fast-paced, and often surprising story approach that is rich in historical detail.
  • Classroom-Tested Topics: The topics presented are those that have proven to be the most consistently popular with Linda Mowatt’s students over the past six years of teaching the course. The topics intentionally build on popular culture and subjects interesting to students.
  • Teacher's Resource: Includes assessment and evaluation tools and strategies, answers to textbook questions and activities, and a CD-ROM with modifiable line masters and an image bank of photos from the book.
