Traditions & Encounters, Volume 2 From 1500 to the Present (ISBN 9780077368036) helps students better understand the society that they live in by exploring the past and what it teaches. By discussing different cultures and traditions, authors Jerry Bentley and Herbert Ziegler are able to create an engaging textbook that combines solid research and interesting vignettes. This volume discusses the origin of interdependence, an age of revolution, industry, and empire, and contemporary global realignments. Bently and Ziegler explain in great detail the transformation of Europe, the Islamic empires, revolutions and national states in the Atlantic world, the Americas in the age of independence, and the making of the industrial society. Topics such as societies at crossroads, the Great War, and the age of anxiety are also covered. Traditions & Encounters, Volume 2 From 1500 to the Present starts gives readers an in-depth look at nationalism and political identities in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, the so-called ‘bipolar' world, and a ‘world without borders.' Aside from intriguing stories, the book also integrates chapter summaries and reviews to help students retain what they have learned. Online supplements are also provided. This textbook uses various tools to encourage students to learn history; it offers exercises, critical missions, and quizzes. Instructors have access to an exclusive manual, PowerPoint presentations (complete with maps), and text outlines among many other resources. Already in its 5th edition, it has been revised to include new chapters and sources, plus redesigned maps. Authors Bentley and Ziegler are both faculty members of the University of Hawaii.
