Each book in the comprehensive World History series offers a clearly written and visually enhanced overview of an important historical event or period. The series is designed both to acquaint readers with the basics of history and to make them aware that their lives and their own historical era are an intimate part of the ongoing human saga.
"Well designed for research and reports, this account includes primary and secondary source quotations, all fully footnoted. Most of these quotes are in separate boxes with source information included so readers do not need to flip back and forth. This informative, approachable text will be useful in most collections."
