Each nation of the world has its own unique and compelling story. Greenhaven Press's History of Nations series tells these stories through the use of primary and secondary sources. Each anthology traces the history of a separate country from its earliest origins through all its birth pangs to its current status in the world. Invasions, revolutions, wars, and other social and political upheavals come to life in these fascinating volumes. The reader will witness the rise and fall of empires, the flowering of advanced cultures, and the havoc wreaked by natural and man-made cataclysms. Each volume begins with an in-depth introduction that supplies essential context. A substantial bibliography offers avenues for further research. A detailed chronology, an annotated table of contents, and a thorough index facilitate easy reference. With its broad scope and essential features, Greenhaven Press's History of Nations series is a useful resource for students of international history. Book jacket.
