Designed to supplement world history survey texts, this distinctive primary source reader has a conceptual framework that emphasizes comparative analysis by presenting foreigners' accounts of a given society alongside accounts from citizens of the same society. These descriptions shed light on the values and beliefs of both the society being described, and those of the writer. The reader is organized chronologically and regionally within each time period. Pedagogical features include introductions, questions, notes, and suggested readings.
