We start with the Big Bang, move on to the earliest era of human foragers, then learn about to the invention of agriculture and the spread of humans around the world. We finally arrive in the twenty-first century, the Anthropocene epoch. This popular book, now in its sixth printing, was designed for students and also includes an appendix about AP World History Teacher’s Guide by Bob Bain and Lauren McArthur Harris.. There are numerous “Thought Experiments” guaranteed to spark discussion about the past, present, and future. Welcome to This Fleeting World. “History teachers wrestling with the question How do I teach all the stuff that makes up world history? might find some answers here. Rather than focus on the minutiae of details, Christian suggests teaching from the big picture. When flying above familiar terrain, he writes, “From the plane you will not see many details, but you will get a clearer sense of the landscape. Individual objects may be blurred, but you will see the relationship between them more easily.” The book can easily be read in one sitting and should prove to be a valuable classroom resource.” --Voya
