Expands and builds upon 'The Race to Rule', adding support for the cross-curricular themes and skills and capabilities. The book covers the period 1500 to 1800, with a focus on the central part of this period. It covers key events in the world as a whole, as well as focusing in on events in Ireland and Britain. This is one of three books for Key Stage 3 that gives students a comprehensive understanding of the key themes that form the history of their part of the world. The Medieval World covers the period to approximately 1500, while Union and Partition covers the period from 1800 to present, with a major emphasis on the period leading up to partition. A fourth book, The Twentieth Century is offered as an alternative for the final year study, taking a theme-based approach to the changes that have come in the past one hundred years. the contents of this book are in self-contained units, so that teachers can choose to cover or omit particular subjects as time and the ability level of the students dictate.
