Age of Discovery
Originally written in the mid-twentieth century, this text provides readers with an interesting overview of some of the leading personalities and events from world history, beginning with the fall of the Roman Empire to the close of the reign of Queen Elizabeth. Students will gain valuable exposure to the laws and culture that developed in medieval Europe, as well as the significant changes that came to people in the West because of the Crusades. Several chapters also touch upon the feudal system in Europe, the influence of the monks and monasteries, and the exploits of influential knights and monarchs. Some of the cultural references in the text material are a bit dated, yet this world history supplement still offers readers a useful overview of the early development of Western Europe. 216 pgs, pb. ~ Mike
