Pulsipher’s textbook shows the diversity of human life and demystifies global issues by representing the daily lives of men, women, and children in the various regions around the world. The seventh edition uses a new thematic framework to organize information and help students think critically about the local and global impacts of environment; gender and population; urbanization; globalization and development; and power and politics.
This text comes with homework help SaplingPlus, an online solution that combines an e-book of the text, Pulsipher’s powerful multimedia resources, and the robust problem bank of Sapling Learning.
