ALA Booklist
Rather than focus on a string of historical events, these titles in the Living History series highlight how citizens lived during key time periods. Complemented by maps, period photos, or reproductions of the time period, each book begins with a time line of important dates. While Life in the Time of Shakespeare does reference the bard, the focus is more on Queen Elizabeth I and the influence of her court, including crime and methods of punishment. The book examines the similarities and differences of city life versus country life, as well as the advantages and risks of life at sea. Another chapter is dedicated to the growth of language and education. Throughout the series, numerous primary-source documents and historians' perspectives add to the validity and interest. Living History delivers what it aims, providing students with a more complete look at history.

Much of what is known about people's everyday lives in times past comes from artifacts but also from diaries, letters, and other writings. Many important details of life during the Civil War, for instance, can be found in the diaries of women who carried on while their men were at war. In the Living History series, firsthand accounts such as these are combined with thoughtful narrative to offer a rich and vivid portrait of daily life in various times and places in history. A visual chronology, sidebars that feature quotes from people of the period and from historians, selected vocabulary words, source notes, a bibliography for further research, and an index provide additional tools for student researchers.
