From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up–In accessible language supported by prolific illustrations and primary sources, these volumes describe eras that transformed the world. Wiesner-Hanks covers the age of exploration from Europe into Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the Americas. Quotes from leaders, philosophers, merchants, and voyagers draw readers into the wonders and horrors of the age. Descriptions from letters and diaries written by common sailors enhance the text. Chapters beginning with, Imagine you are... help readers experience the scenarios as they occurred. In addition to chronicling the impact of exploration and trade on the economy of Western Europe, the text also addresses the devastating impact of diseases spread worldwide by traders and the religious power struggles between followers of the Roman church and Protestantism. Huff's title moves readers into the Enlightenment with the same high-quality text, illustrations, and sidebar quotes from the scientists, statesmen, writers, and religious leaders of the day. Once again, readers travel the globe to witness changes in the Ottoman Empire, India, and China as well as Europe and the Americas. Women scientists and writers such as Caroline Herschel and Mary Wollstonecraft are featured. Observations of diplomat wives, such as Mary Wortley Montagu, are quoted alongside the men. Whether chapters open with stories of everyday people, dramas of celebrities, or questions to spark curiosity, each section draws teens into the lives and issues that awakened people's minds and paved the way for the modern world. These exceptional volumes will captivate students and re-create history as a living spectacle.–Kathy Lehman, Thomas Dale High School Library, Chester, VA
