Text used:  Traditions Encounters; A Global Perspective on the Past     Jerry Bentley/Herb Ziegler, Third Edition.  ISBN:  0-07-295754-9  (I have chosen the 3rd edition because it appears there are many available that are "used" and therefore  less expensive than the newer ones.)  I found mine on Amazon, but I am sure Ebay has them also.  This text is an approved source for World History.

This class meets the World History requirement for the state of Georgia.  One Core Credit
