Product Description

This brilliant book looks at the world during the major periods of history: The Ancient World, Medieval World, Age of Exploration and Empire (1450-1800), and The Modern World (since 1800). History is explored through small illustrations on large portions of the map; captions explain what was happening, important places, dates, people, and events. Because larger sections of the globe are covered, it allows readers to note and see border issues, trade & exploration routes, and simultaneous kingdoms that are otherwise studied separately. See what was happening across North America, in Europe, in Southeast Asia, China, India, the Pacific, and everywhere else, and how the past developed into the world we know today. A timeline on the side of the page keeps the world events in perspective. 181 pages, indexed, hardcover with dust jacket. 12.25" x 9.75".

Please Note: This book mentions humans at 200,000 years ago.

Editorial Reviews

Library Media Connection
(starred review) This extensive volume covers an enormous span of history in an organized, easy-to-follow manner. Divided into four major sections: The Ancient World, The Medieval World, Exploration and Empire, and The Modern World, this book is thorough without becoming overwhelming to readers. . . . Overall, thi sis a great addition to the collection for its breadth of topic and ease of use. Highly Recommended.
 
This beautifully  presented and carefully reserached book presents history in a new way that will show young readers that history does not have to be dull and dry. Quite the contrary.
