Modern history-history, that is, after the fall of Constantinople ì in 1453-can sometimes seems like a confusing jumble of unrelated ì events. As a result, many curricula needlessly avoid this ì exciting period of history. Memoria Press' new Famous Men of ì Modern Times will bring the events of the last 500 years to life. ì These stories provide great insight into the foundations of the ì modern world. Balanced and well written with many interesting ì details and beautiful color illustrations, the Famous Men of ì Modern Times is, perhaps, Haaran and Poland's best work yet.
Why study history through its famous men? Haaren or and Poland ì answer in their preface:"The study of history, like the study of ì a landscape, should begin with the most conspicuous features. Not ì until these have been fixed in memory will the lesser features ì fall into their appropriate places and assume their right ì proportions. In order to attract and hold the child's attention, ì each conspicuous feature of history presented to him should have ì an individual for its center. The child sees himself as this ì individual. It is not Romulus or Hercules or Caesar or Alexander ì that the child has in mind when he reads, but himself, acting ì under the prescribed conditions. Prominent educators, ì appreciating these truths, have long recognized the value of ì biography as a preparation for the study of history and have ì given it an important place in their scheme of studies."

The program ì also comes with plenty of supplemental exercises, including maps, ì a "Who Said That?" worksheet, and drawing pages.
