Explore The Depths Of History
Gale In Context: World History reaches back to the ancient world—and forward to today's headlines—to deliver a chronicle of the people, cultures, events, and societies that have formed the history of the human race. A range of topics such as Aztecs, Industrial Revolution, Silk Road, the Buddha, Space Race, and more provide a wide perspective across the globe.
Rare primary sources, reliable reference, and multimedia content are aligned to curriculum and put this vast subject into context for students. World History is cross-searchable with Gale In Context: U.S. History for users with access to both resources
A part of the Gale In Context suite, World History offers an enhanced user experience with familiar navigation and a modern design to help users successfully orient across Gale products. This means less time learning how to use the product, and more time developing critical thinking skills. Tools like translation, text size adjustment, and text-to-speech help users with comprehension, while Lexiles and content levels help guide users to appropriate content.
Get the most out of your investment. Add Gale In Context: For Educators, a specialized toolkit that lets educators collect, organize, customize, and share instructional materials sourced from your Gale In Context databases.

Reviews & Testimonials
“I knew that it made a lot of sense to have Gale products since students were using G Suite for Education. Also, teachers were looking for current research material, which In Context databases provided.”
“By limiting the content allowed into the search pool, databases such as the two reviewed here [U.S. History in Context and World History in Context] avoid burying researchers with the sheer number of results returned in an open Web search.”
