Overview

The second volume of the series expands upon the concepts and foundations of the first, while introducing new ideas such as complex societies, the empire, and the interplay between cultures that began to take place as the world became more interconnected. The volume also continues the pattern of establishing major concepts as “Acts” and “setting the stage” for each major era of human history.
