• What have archaeologists and historians discovered that make this history ‘new’ and ‘living’?
• How does this history impact the way in which people, cultures and ideas interact?
• How do they shape and impact today’s modern world?
Filled with interesting sources, statistical representations, cartoons, colourful maps, useful research tips and glossaries, and interspersed with global perspectives, this series will make history both relevant and fun for every reader. Because chronology and conceptual development are such important education principles in history, Books 1 and 2 focus on the ancient civilizations (3000 BC to the 15th century) and provide scaffolds for students to reflect deeply on the modern world that they live in today. Book 3 introduces the modern period of Asian History. Focused on Southeast Asia, this book introduces the concepts of colonialism and nationalism by exploring case studies of Malaya, Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand as investigative case studies for students to more deeply engage and study as historical inquiry.
