The second in a series of three accessible world history overviews, Simply History: Renaissance to the Late 1800s reviews the key people, places, and events in the history of the world from the end of the Middle Ages to the late 1800s. It shows how these elements of history continue to affect societies around the world today. As with other books in Walch’s Simply History series, it strives to present a brief, even-handed overview of selected highlights. These include: A Rebirth in Europe - the alterations that marked the end of the medieval period in Europe and the start of the Renaissance as changes in farming and the growth in trade led to new social systems, national structures, and approaches to religion. Including some of the great thinkers and artists of the Renaissance period.

Europe Colonizes the Globe - the results of European exploration, including the rise of European trading economies and the response of China and Japan to European attempts to trade with them including Britain’s role in India after the fall of the Mogul Empire, and the effects of European expansion in Africa. New Ideas Lead to Revolution - the Enlightenment, a period of new ideas and how they helped inspire revolutions around the world, including in the American colonies, in France, and in Latin America and the governments that followed. The Industrial Revolution - the series of developments that led to industrialization, first in Britain and then in other countries including the changes in society that came about as a result. Nationalism and Social Reform - how the social evils of the Industrial Revolution led to different approaches to helping workers achieve fair treatment, the growing sense of national identity in Europe and the drive for expansion in the United States, the struggle to end slavery in the United States, and to give women the right to vote.
