Perfect for Students, Their Parents, Educators or The Arm-Chair Historian!
What if, for the price of a latte and an hour of your time, you could really learn about and enjoy history? We’re not just talking about memorizing dates and names, but truly grasping the ideas, feelings and passion behind major events and how humans have clashed over them for centuries?
The Best One-Hour History series by history teacher Robert Freeman is for those who want a quick but coherent overview of major historical events. It will also serve those who need a competent high-level introduction before going further. Each volume is less than 60 pages long and provides a clear and concise account of the episode under discussion. Details include the context in which it arose, the major actors, the event itself, and the major consequences. In about an hour, the reader will obtain a thorough understanding of why each subject holds iconic status in Western Civilization. And it will NOT be boring!
