Greenhaven Press's Exploring Cultural History series provides students and general readers with the major highlights of life in human cultures from ancient times to the present. Each anthology focuses on a particular era and region and presents primary and secondary documents that examine the family, home life, food and drink, women, childhood and education, arts and leisure, literacy and literature, roads and means of communications, slavery, religious beliefs, and more. Primary sources allow original voices from a past culture to echo through the corridors of time to give these topics immediacy and authenticity. Essays by historians and other modern scholars specializing in the topic add overviews and objective factual information to enhance the eyewitness accounts. An annotated table of contents, chronology, and extensive bibliography add clarity and context. Each volume in Greenhaven Press's Exploring Cultural History series opens a unique window through which readers can gaze into a distant time and place and eavesdrop on life in a vanished culture.
