Each volume begins with a timeline and an introduction. The first chapter gives a historical overview, and following chapters discuss cause and effect questions. Each chapter lists three focus questions which could be essay questions for a final exam, and goes on to discuss those issues. The questions are thought-provoking, and not usually covered in textbooks. They often draw parallels with contemporary issues and events. There are occasional minor inaccuracies and some of the images’ relevance can be puzzling. Quotations are often from secondary or tertiary sources.These are attractive books that are easy to read and should engage students. Bibliography. Index.
