From the Publisher
The Big Freeze
"The foundations of today's Europe were forged in the events of the late ice age."
The Athenian constitution relied on a careful separation of powers. This was essential to make the practical operation of direct democracy possible. It also ensured that all citizens (men aged 20 and above) could serve and that power could not be abused.
The Outbreak of the Black Death
The Black Death kills over a third of Europe's Population.
"[The Big Ideas Simply Explained books] are beautifully illustrated with shadow-like cartoons that break down even the most difficult concepts so they are easier to grasp. These step-by-step diagrams are an incredibly clever learning device to include, especially for visual learners." — Examiner.com
"The visual layout promotes browsing with illustrations, pull quotes, and simple mind maps to explain concepts quickly." — Library Journal
"Accessible guide to the great thinkers." — School Library Journal
"Clever and engaging." — Booklist
"Kids are never too young to understand history; it just needs to be presented in the appropriate way. With that in mind, The History Book is a fantastic place to start." — GeekDad.com
