Book by Reilly Kevin


I look forward to using this new world history textbook, which greatly advances our struggle to think world historically and to get this field 'right.' This book is among the first to incorporate what Kevin Reilly calls 'little big history' and put human history in its place, while never losing sight of the significance of the human presence. It is a wonderfully scholarly book that directly engages the latest debates in the field (with footnotes even!) yet wears its erudition lightly. Reilly expertly weaves together political, economic, social, and LOTS of cultural threads, selecting good-and sometimes surprising-case studies for illustration. The text never loses sight of his view of the grand arc of it all, arguing for a series of successive globalizations over at least the last millennium. This text will make a wonderful companion to Reilly's two-volume document series, which remains a classic in the field. -- Sue Gronewold, Kean University The Human Journey speaks directly to students, offering a very readable and well-developed narrative about the interactions and connections that have shaped human society-from the first hominids to the contemporary implications of globalization. Kevin Reilly presents stories of humanity's past that are concise while also providing depth and ease of understanding. This is an engaging text where readers travel back in time and are amply rewarded for their journey. -- David M. Kalivas, Middlesex Community College; editor of H-World at H-Net Kevin Reilly has been a pioneer in the field of world history for nearly three decades. His textbooks and source collections have brought order and clarity to this vast subject for a generation of college students. In The Human Journey, Reilly presents the latest scholarship for general readers and students with his customary blend of intellectual curiosity, wonder, and lively expression. I can think of no better place to start out on the path of world history. -- George D. Sussman, LaGuardia Community College, CUNY Up-to-date information and conceptualization take this book to a new level of excellence. As always, Kevin Reilly offers rich social history and narrative. -- Marilynn Hitchens, University of Colorado Denver
