Review this Book

History of the Americas and Caribbean

A Concise Outline

by

Jack J. Kanski presents concise, illustrated histories covering a range of historical periods and providing readers with key information about events and people that have shaped the history of the world. In the book, Kanski offers readers key information on the history of the countries and military events, exploring how individuals helped to shape the outcome of these conflicts. In History of Africa, Asia and Australia and History of the Americas and Caribbean, the reader is also presented with information regarding key historical periods and important events. Using a didactic, bullet-point format and accompanied by many colour illustrations, including paintings and maps, Kanski’s A Concise Outline series enables readers to quickly and easily absorb key information about some of the world’s most famous historical individuals and events. The books are not designed for historians, but rather will appeal to the general reader searching for concise and informative history books.

Full Text:
I am on a huge non-fiction book spree at the moment, with so many different topics that you can learn about easily and in your own time. Although I do love a well written fiction novel I do enjoy reading them alongside a fact based book such as this one. So, when I saw this on NetGalley (yes, again! It's my favourite haunt!)

I really appreciated that in the synopsis the publisher has given an outline of what is included and in what sort of formal as well as that 'the books are not designed for historians, but rather will appeal to the general reader searching for concise and informative history books.' This definitely made me less anxious to pick it up, I am by no means a history buff so these sort of disclosures help reassure you that it won't just go straight over your head! I never liked History at school at all, I found it so dull but as is so often the case, my interest in it developed years later. These sort of introductions are exactly what I need to further my interest in the subject.

All basic facts are here and are set out in a readable way, so much so that I would definitely choose another similar title if Troubador were to publish one in the future. A book that makes learning fun and simple is a rarity! Congratulations to the author for this excellent example.
