Comparative history like that featured in the exceptional Around the World series turns young historians into whirl-wind -- yet thoughtful -- global travelers. Moving continent by continent, between 300 B.C. and 1800, they visit important locations, meet notable people and witness momentous events. They reflect on affairs in one part of the world within the context of what they know is happening elsewhere. They contemplate the big picture, but take pleasure in abundant interesting anecdotes, quirky facts and stunning photographs. Offering a broad overview of specific periods of history, Around the World makes a sizeable amount of information readily accessible to young historians. It also gives them plenty to think about.
