Reviews

When I received my copy of Understanding the Modern World I was pleased to see that the headings are clear, the layout of the pages is effective and the content is summarised in a manner which will be accessible to students.

I'm pleased to see examples of practice questions supporting the text and the Assessment Focus sections at the end of the chapters are fantastic. This will really help with the teaching of exam technique. -- Student Progress Leader (Humanities), Trinity Academy Halifax * Victoria Daniels *
