Frameworks of World History is a groundbreaking text that uses a clear and consistent analytical approach to studying world history. Author Stephen Morillo - an award-winning teacher with more than twenty-five years of experience teaching World History - frames the study of this vast subjectaround a model that shows students how to do world history and not just learn about it. While this globally organized text contains all of the essential information, it is the only book that does not just tell what happened, but also shows how and why it happened. Using a framework that examines networks, hierarchies, and culture in world history, Morillo presents a thesis and an argument that students - and instructors - can respond to.
Stephen Morillo holds the Jane and Frederic M. Hadley Chair of History at Wabash College. He is the author of numerous monographs and journal articles and the coauthor of War in World History: Society, Technology and War from Ancient Times to the Present (2008) and Cultural Encounters: Themes and Sources in World History (2005).
