THE HUMAN RECORD is the leading primary source reader for the World History course, providing balanced coverage of the global past. Each volume contains a blend of visual and textual sources that are often paired or grouped together for comparison, as in the Multiple Voices feature. A prologue entitled “Primary Sources and How to Read Them” appears in each volume and serves as a valuable pedagogical tool. Approximately one-third of the sources in the Eighth Edition are new, and these documents continue to reflect the myriad experiences of the peoples of the world.
