  • I am impressed with this book as it deals with a very sensitive topic in a very mature way (especially as this is aimed at younger students). I did part of this book with a Year 8 class and they were very mature and engrossed by the topics studied (especially the History of Terrorism). I am also impressed with the section on the various different types of terrorism that have occurred as many students have the usual stereotypical views of terrorism. If used correctly, this is a very good book to teach pupils about such a topic. My students were able to understand that terrorism takes many different forms and that it is incorrect to simply tar certain groups with the same brush. - Amazon Review
  • I'm working on new courses for the Curriculum for Excellence in Scotland and this has been a big help. It is well presented with key ideas, concept and vocabulary well explained and a good selection of illustrations and sources. It works effectively in integrated Social Subjects units and feeds in very well with history units on the British Empire, slavery, race relations and the Crusades - the book in this series on the Empire is also very good. My colleagues and I have enjoyed looking through it and found it interesting but it is very well pitched for the target age group. If it can keep the attention of teenagers and adults it must be doing something right! - Amazon review
