Format: Hardcover
Would you like to see your name in hieroglyphics or cuneiform? Would you like to listen to dozens of famous speeches from throughout the 20th century? How about going on a virtual tour of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World? If you have Internet access, you can do this and more with a copy of this book.Web sites to enhance each period of history are listed in the book and can be accessed through the publisher's web site. These are HIGHLY REPUTABLE sites from universities, museums and other instititutions throughout the world. The book is divided into 4 sections: Prehistoric World, Ancient World, Medieval World, and the Last 500 Years. Even without internet access, the book stands on it's own as a thorough reference of history from the Big Bang to the New Millenium. As with all Usborne books, there are fascinating illustrations and photographs to complement the text.

Format: Paperback
I'm a primary English teacher in Spain that teaches content in english and usually have great dificulty to find suitable matrials for my classes. I'm currently developing with my 10-11 year old pupils a unit on History and I've found this book very useful because of the information and, mainly, because the way that the information is arranged and presented to the kids.

Before sending the kids to the PC for their history homework, direct them to the bookshelf and the Usborne Encyclopaedia of World History. With a massive range of topics, the encyclopaedia will then direct your young historians to the best pages on the web for their project. Detailed illustrations and colour photographs are supplemented with informative and interesting text, encouraging KS3 and KS4 readers to delve deeper into fascinating bygone worlds.

Format: Paperback
This book provides a brilliant introduction to history. The chronological order of events really helps to place historical events in context. The text is easy to read and informative. It does not overwhelm the child but provides internet links so that subjects can be studied in more detail when required.

I cannot praise this book highly enough - I have already told several of my friends about it. I have also bought the usborne internet-linked encyclopedias of science, geography, english and maths and they are of an equally high calibre.
