About the Author

Elizabeth Pollard (San Diego State University) is a historian of the ancient world, in particular of Roman and Greek civilizations, and her research interests cross the disciplinary and methodological boundaries between history, religious studies, classics, and women's studies. Her pedagogical interests include the effectiveness of web-based technology and world history in teaching, learning, and writing about ancient history. She teaches the world history survey regularly. Clifford Rosenberg (Princeton University) is associate professor of European history at City College and the Graduate Center, CUNY. He specializes in the history of modern France and its empire and is the author of Policing Paris: The Origins of Modern Immigration Control Between the Wars. He is working now on the spread of tuberculosis between France and Algeria since the mid-nineteenth century. Robert Tignor (Princeton University) is Professor Emeritus and the Rosengarten Professor of Modern and Contemporary History at Princeton University and the former three-time chair of the history department. With Gyan Prakash, he introduced Princeton's first course in world history nearly twenty years ago. Professor Tignor has taught graduate and undergraduate courses in African history and world history and written extensively on the history of twentieth century Egypt, Nigeria, and Kenya. Besides his many research trips to Africa, Professor Tignor has taught at the University of Ibadan in Nigeria and the University of Nairobi in Kenya. Alan Karras (University of California, Berkeley) studies the eighteenth-century Atlantic world and global interactions more broadly concerning illegal activities like smuggling. Karras is the Associate Director of International & Area Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, and has served as chair of the College Board's test development committee for world history and as co-chair of the College Board's commission on AP history course revisions.
