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
