What are the defining characteristics of the sprawling era known as the Middle Ages? What sets ancient Egypt apart from other ancient civilizations? And what is the legacy of the twentieth-century genocide known as the Holocaust? These are some of the ideas explored in Understanding World History, a series that surveys the political, social, and cultural trends of major periods and events in world history. Primary and secondary source quotes bring historical events to life. Source notes, a bibliography for further research, and index provide additional tools for student researchers. Book jacket.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Understanding World History series first lays out the sequence of events in each period of history and then explains how these events shaped what happened next. Each title begins with a time line, helping students fix the period of history in their minds while providing them with a broad overview. Titles also include an annotated list of important people in the back matter. Page designs incorporate a parchment-paper background, and many of the illustrations are by artists of the period and often include maps and boxes to highlight particular subjects, such as The Greek Chorus, in Ancient Greece. This title combines mythology, history, and politics and provides an enlightening perspective on the treatment of women in the cultures of Athens and Sparta. These concise treatments of important historical subjects should help students get a firmer grasp on what happened when, and why we still care.--Dove Lempke, Susan Copyright 2010 Booklist"
