Synopsis

The Age of Revolution by Charles Kovacs

An overview of world history from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries, including the French, American and Industrial Revolutions. Kovacs chooses pertinent stories which create a tapestry showing the development of humankind from medieval times, when every person had their place in the hierarchy of society, to the awakening of individuality in modern times. In the Steiner-Waldorf Education curriculum this period of history is taught in Class 8 (age 13-14).

Reviews

'This book is published for use by Steiner School teachers but it is a marvellous read for anyone who would like to get to grips in a lively way with history. The book is written in an eminently readable and warm style. It will give young people a good, clear perspective on how, why and what went wrong in the past, and how we might find a better way for the future. I found The Age of Revolution interesting and enjoyable and long after having finished the book, I was able to recall much information I had read therein. Charles Kovacs certainly brought history alive for me and I recommend it both to adults wanting to enhance their understanding of past events, and as an excellent resource book for teachers.'

After the War, he settled in Britain, and in 1956 he took over a class at the Rudolf Steiner School in Edinburgh, where he remained a class teacher until his retirement in 1976. He died in 2001. His extensive lesson notes have been a useful and inspiring resource material for many teachers.
