According to the authors, this book was written to show students that the study of the past is not just memorizing names, dates, battles, and treaties. To make history come alive for the student they have written 91 stories about the people and events of the past. Many of the characters in the stories are or were real people; some of the stories are fictional but many did happen. Those stories that are imaginary are based on solid historical evidence. They might very well have occurred. They have used a variety of literary forms-short stories, plays, newspaper reporting, interior monologues, letters. The illustrative materials-maps, charts, cartoons, line drawings-are the basis for comprehension questions following each story. The stories are introduced by a short historical narrative which sets the time and place and explains in easy-to-understand terms the political, social, and economic setting. Short-answer questions follow each of the stories. Ten different types of questions are used throughout the book. In addition, the Activities and Inquiries sections provide opportunities for student research and the development of social studies skills. It is the authors hope that the stories in this text will interest students and give them insight into how people lived and the forces that shaped their lives so that they can gain an understanding of the contemporary world.

I purchased the book because it was written by someone I know. I wanted to see if his gift of words transferred to the written word. I was not surprised when I saw it had.

This book (recently re-printed and updated in 1992) is an excellent supplement for both the world history student and teacher. Written by former high school histroy teachers, it contains nover one hundred stories that are fictional but based on accurate historical truth. Each story teaches a specific lesson in world history and contains introductory and postscript material to the stories as well. Perhaps its greatest strength is that the book contains stories that span from prehistoric man through today and covers many different cultures as well (not just western civilization cultures). The stories contain a remarkble and expansive range, such as: a debate between the benefits/drawbacks of hunting vs. farming between two ancient people in 8000 BC; an Indian mother arguing with her daughter about why she (a Brahman) cannot associate with children of the lower castes; a French husband and wife watching the fall of the Bastille in 1789. This reviewer has personally typed the stories fromt he book onto sheets and wrote questions on the back for my students to answer once they've read the stories. The lengths of the stories typically range from one-two pages in length. I heartily recommend this book for the history teacher who wishes to enhance and enrich their curriculum. Check out their second book for US history teachers called Enjoying American History.
