Afghanistan is organized chronologically and covers events from September 11, 2001, to the end of 2013, while Arab Spring delves into the historical background of politics in Northern Africa and the Middle East, then examines the uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya, touching on relevant events in surrounding nations as well. Though these books are written from an American perspective, the authors strive to offer a balanced, accurate portrayal of events. The writing style in both titles is straightforward, if somewhat dry. While these books will be most useful to students writing reports, they provide valuable coverage of recent events and will fill a gap in many collections.&12; Misti Tidman, Licking County Library, Newark, OH

What are the defining characteristics of the sprawling era known as the Middle Ages? What sets ancient Egypt apart from other ancient civilizations? And what is the legacy of the twentieth-century genocide known as the Holocaust? These are some of the ideas explored in Understanding World History, a series that surveys the political, social, and cultural trends of major periods and events in world history. Primary and secondary source quotes bring historical events to life. Source notes, a bibliography for further research, and index provide additional tools for student researchers. Book jacket.
