World History 2014-2015
Mrs. Soares
Room #12
While historical events are unique, they often are driven by similar, repeated forces. In
telling the history of our world, Modern World History pays special attention to eight
significant and recurring themes. These themes are presented to show that from America,
to Africa, to Asia, people are more alike than they realize. Throughout history humans
have confronted similar obstacles, have struggled to achieve similar goals, and
continually have strived to better themselves and the world around them.
These themes are:
1. Power and Authority
2. Religious and Ethical Systems
3. Revolution
4. Interaction with Environment
5. Economics
6. Cultural Interaction
7. Empire Building
8. Science and Technology
