Eyewitness to History From Ancient Times to the Modern Era by Patricia Daniels

Eyewitness to History From Ancient Times to the Modern Era


Eyewitness to History From Ancient Times to the Modern Era by Patricia Daniels

The voices of the great and humble speak to us through songs, documents, edicts, poetry, letters, menus, and even graffiti, revealing each era's conflicts, daily life, arts, science, religion, and enduring influence. Interactive design focuses on the tangible artifacts of history, and magnificent illustrations-including period art, archival photographs, and expertly rendered scenes of long-ago events-bring vivid immediacy and eye appeal to every colourful spread. With its unique emphasis on voices from the past, its competitive price point, and its inviting, innovative design, Eyewitness to History is poised to be THE pick for value-minded customers looking for an absorbing take on world history.
