Ways of the World: A Brief Global History with Sources by Robert W. StrayerI echo most of the sentiments of most other reviews. It had good information, but would ABSOLUTELY NOT recommend it for AP World History classes because it takes forever to get through and is so hard to read. The information is unnecessarily verbose. However, I loved at the beginning of every chapter pieces of art were discussed which really helped when preparing for the Document Based Questions (DBQs) on the AP exam. So glad the AP World History curriculum is changing and my school wont be using them anymore. Glad to sell it. Glad to be done with it. No offense Strayer, but Im over you. Im soooooo done with you.

Robert W. Strayer , The College at Brockport Follow. Designed from the beginning as a brief text, "Ways of the World" focuses on the "big picture" of significant historical developments and is thoroughly global in its thematic and comparative approach. The accessible voice of a single author, with long experience in the classroom and in the world history movement, delivers to students an insightful new synthesis, thought provoking questions, and chapter ending sections that invite reflection on the meaning of world history. Available in full color and in combined and split volumes, "Ways of the World" just might be the book you've been waiting for.
