Renaissance, Revolution & Reformation by Aaron Wilkes is a very good book. The author has produced a very accessible text with a variety of activities which will interest, excite and stimulate young historians. I particularly like the problem based approach which gives insight into a broad spectrum of both social and political issues of the period. An engaging text book which students and teachers alike will find most useful.
I think Aaron has produced a good book. It is accessible for those that do not like reading large quantities of material; there is lots of colour, fun clear diagrams and good maps; youngsters will particularly like the cartoon characters in many of the exercises. I also like the chronological approach and the clarity with which particular topics have been presented. There is a good variety of exercises, particularly the assessment tasks, that can easily be differentiated. * Paul Barter, Stover School, Devon *
