More Boys and Girls of History
By

Rating
First published in 1928, the studies in this book illustrate the lives of children within various different times and social contexts. Created following the enthusiastic response which greeted the original Boys and Girls of History, this volume concentrates on the period subsequent to the Middle Ages in the history of Britain and home and overseas. As with the original, reconstructions of daily life are used as a means of avoiding the generalised tone employed in many historical accounts, the aim being to develop the young reader's knowledge through a sense of empathy with the figures being described. Highly readable, and containing a large number of beautiful illustrations, the text was again co-authored by the renowned historian Eileen Power, together with her sister Rhoda Power. It will be of value to anyone with an interest in early twentieth-century history books for young readers.
