The Adventures of Ibn Battuta: A Muslim Traveler of the Fourteenth Century

The Adventures of Ibn Battuta: A Muslim Traveler of the Fourteenth Century, Revised Edition, with a New Preface - Ibn Battuta, Ross E. Dunn I took a World History survey course as a sophomore in college and this was the textbook. Really opens your eyes to society and culture in the ancient world. We're so used to learning the Western tradition in our educational system that to see the world from a Muslim's perspective was enlightening, especially with the emphasis on Asia and Africa.
