THE STUDENT'S FRIEND CONCISE WORLD HISTORY

Parts 1 and 2—Prehistory to the Present

By Mike Maxwell. Leaving out the overwhelming details that can sap student interest and hinder the learning process, this clear and concise account of world history provides a sharp focus on significant events, people, places, and concepts. Short, logically sequenced lessons flow smoothly from one to the next, providing the historical narrative with continuity. Part 1 covers prehistory to 1500, emphasizing the major cultures of the Middle East, India, China, and the Mediterranean. Part 2 examines 1500 to the present, tackling such issues as the Enlightenment, industrialism, the Cold War, nuclear proliferation, terrorism, the environment, globalization, and more. Maps at the beginning of each chapter supplement the text and help to orient readers geographically. Questions to consider are included at the end of each chapter. Grades 7–12.
