The World gives students the whole story. It is a new kind of history text — not just a collection of facts and figures. World renowned historian, world respected scholar, successful author of more than 25 books translated into 22 languages, and exceptional writer, author Felipe Fernández-Armesto offers a truly holistic narrative of the world, from human beginnings to the present. All aspects of the text — from the exceptionally clear narrative that always places the story in time, to the unparalleled map program, to the focused pedagogical features — support the story. Because of the author’s breadth of vision, students will come away with a deep understanding of the fundamental interrelationships — among peoples and their environments — that make up the world’s story. Developing a project like The World required the input of and counsel of hundreds of individuals. David Ringrose, respected World Historian from the University of California—San Diego, served as The World’s editorial consultant, and provided extensive teaching tips in the Instructor’s Guide to Teaching the World. Nearly 100 reviewers critiqued the manuscript, from the first edition to the final draft. Instructor focus groups were held throughout the country during the publication process. And finally, we are proud that over 1,000 students from across the country class-tested The World, providing invaluable feedback and advice.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
