The Nineteenth-Century World
By Alex Woolf
This beautifully illustrated series takes you on a chronological journey through major developments in civilisations across the globe
What developments in government and society, industry, exploration and discovery, science and technology, art, architecture and literature, medicine, communication and transport were there in the nineteenth-century world of Europe, and how did these compare with those made during the same time period in the Islamic world and elsewhere in Africa and Asia? What was happening at the same time in the Americas? Packed with beautiful illustrations, this book, in the Parallel History series for readers upwards of age nine, will help you to explore the nineteenth-century world chronologically, with timelines to show you when major events and achievements took place.
Alex Woolf studied history at Essex University, and has written and edited many 20th century history titles for young people.
