“This Fleeting World” is a summarized version of world history in a short, 92 page book. How can such a small book tell such a large story? Well this book is divided into 3 sections, “The era of foragers”, “The agrarian era”, and “The modern era”. The first era is the era of foragers you may know as the hunter-gatherer era lasted between 300,000 BCE to 10,000 BCE according to this book and was by far the longest era in human history. The second era is the agrarian era which lasted between 13000 BCE and 1750 CE and was the 2nd longest era in human history. The third era is the modern era which started in 1750-present and is so far the shortest era in human history. Each of these sections are only approximately 30 pages long and is relatively short compared to most history books I have read.

Mankind will only survive by living with adversity, not with perfection. Humans seek success but true growth comes from the struggles faced obtaining it. Without the challenge, mankind and nature itself withers away in boredom and sterility. Humans, as with all organisms in nature, survive by adapting to challenge, not by the lack of them. The narrator in Wallace Stegner’s “Crossing Into Eden” finds that paradise is no place for humans because it is too perfect and does not offer the adversity mankind requires to exist.
Kush Garg Matthew Soucy H-English/AP-World History September 26, 2015 Ishmael: Change is Impossible After reading the book Ishmael, my mind has been expanding on the main topic of the book which is why we can’t change society because whenever we try to advance change just adds onto the destruction we are causing to our world. While I was reading this book, I began to learn more about how we are destroying our world even more. When humans lived in a simple manner, believing that they lived in the “hands of the gods,” evolution was destined to happen because humans had to adapt to their environment. This evolution sparked the problems that would come later in history, like deforestation, social inequality and pollution.
n Lies My Teacher Told, James W. Loewen discusses how American students who enter college are less knowledgeable about their own history than any other subject. He claims that American history is the least liked and worst remembered subject in the American curriculum. High school students hate history and see it as “boring and irrelevant” (Loewen 2). Loewen argues that the uninteresting, Eurocentric treatment of history bores most elementary and high school students, who also find it irrelevant to their lives. To make learning more compelling, Loewen suggests that authors, publishers, and teachers should make history appealing and be engaging to the students.

There have been many changes throughout history, though the Neolithic revolution is often considered the most noteworthy. This era is when systematic agriculture was developed, fundamentally changing the way people lived. This was a major change in history: from hunting and gathering, to farming and domesticating animals. Occurring from around 10,000-3,000 BC, it changed the way history would be perceived. There were many consequences of the Neolithic revolution, which changed life greatly.
The progression of civilization since the 900’s leaves archaeologists and historians with questions such as, why did societies decide to domesticate crops or why did society abandon the hunter gather lifestyle? There are many hypothesis for the origins of agriculture like the social hypothesis that claims the success of food production allowed individuals to create surplus which gave them the ability to trade for valuable goods. This surplus also provided individuals with power and the leaders could acquire a labor force that would help them gather and create more surplus. The hunter gather lifestyle had its advantages as well. Hunter gathers had a seasonal routine and did not have to rely on someone to provide them with food.
The history of humanity is essentially a long string of ups and downs, rights and wrongs, Golden Ages and Great Depressions. While it may seem to the average person like humanity has made great strides, many historians believe that within the last 3,400 years, humans have only been at peace for 268 of them. The time left over, which is 3,132 years, are times of war, including World War I and II, the American Revolution, Hundred Years War, even the Fall of the Roman Empire; this time also includes many sins, wrongdoings, and accusations of the innocent. The concept of sin has been the inspiration for many works of literature. One great writer who took inspiration from those scenarios is Arthur Miller.
Authors of the 20th century, such as Russell Banks and Tim O’Brien, have taken the traditional elements of fiction and created an updated version. The wave of modernism has affected many elements such as point of view, characterization, and the passage of time. Setting and themes have also been affected by these new writings.
Unlike Martin Luther, there are more than 95 thesis’ on my improvement due to AP World History. In World History class, I not only managed to learn about the Ways of the World, (by Robert W. Strayer) I was additionally able to obtain valuable skills such as time management, cleaver studying, and overall independence. As a Freshman, I was skeptical of taking AP World History; I was aware of the fast-pace and rigor, something I had not experienced before. AP World History is definitely not an easy class, but it is an experience, a journey in which I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to take.
People insist that European History is one of the toughest AP classes a student can take. For me, taking that class as a sophomore in high school instead of college was a huge triumph. I 'm a junior now, taking AP United States History, and it is a lot easier. However, in a way I needed something like AP European History to see what I could handle. The class allowed me to think outside the box and expand my boundaries.
In the humanities conception, history is described as the study of how people process and document the human experience as a function of culture, religion, economics, and overall human affairs. Psychology, the study of the human mind and its functions, is in essence, the driving factor of history, as it serves as the explanation for what causes humans to participate or perform certain actions within a given context or culture. In combining both history and psychology, Natalie Z. Davis provides two possible versions, not just one narrow perspective.
