Synopsis

Hodder History: New Worlds for Old, Britain 1750-1900 by Neil DeMarco

This is an exciting Key Stage 3 resource for teaching and learning about the issues and events that characterize the birth and development of industrial Britain. Including the country's relations with Europe and its growing Empire. The title never lets go of the period's story, providing opportunities to examine the big picture and investigate particular topics. Did you know that Napoleon might have been poisoned by his wallpaper; that slaves who refused to eat had their teeth broken and food forced into their mouths; that during the Indian Mutiny the British executed prisoners by tying them to the front of their cannons; or that one reason why the Titanic sank was because the sea was so calm?

Reviews

A good balance of well-sized text, picture sources and structured tasks...The overall effect is pleasantly uncluttered...The differentiated textbooks are a huge selling point for those teaching a broad-ability range. The support materials are creative and varied and will easily maintain interest. Times Educational Supplement Like its partner titles on the medieval period, the two versions of New Worlds for Old meet the needs of the average and below average pupil by a clever combination of choice of subject matter and understanding of learning styles...One of the strengths of this title is the focus on individuals who made or at least reflected the history...Why was it not available 10 years ago? Times Educational Supplement This series has now become the mainstay of the department. Teachers feel very positive about using the series as a teaching resource. Mr Dashley, Earlham County High School

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
