Asian People Who Changed History by Adam Sutherland

Explore the lives of those who made their mark on history, from building empires to establishing new belief systems and from speaking out against injustice to climbing to the top of the world. The History Makers series looks at the lives of significant figures from the past and present, who, by their ideas and actions, affected the course of history in their own countries and across the world.
