The extended plan of the series is designed in response to the changing trends in history examinations at 18 plus, which now demand the study of documentary sources and the testing of historical skills.
Each volume, similar in format to the earlier books in the series, concentrates on a particular topic within a narrower time span.
The authors in this volume address the questions 'What is empowerment?' Is it power over resources? Is it about access to resources and how they are controlled, politically, economically, by NGOs, by political parties, by the state? They evaluate how in different circumstances different political agents have been seen as provider of resources.
Marxism and History examines Marxism's enormous impact on the way historians approach their subject. Tackling current historiographical questions in a lively, jargon-free way, Matt Perry offers a concise introduction to: Marxist views of history; and the relevance of Marxist theory and history to students' own work.
The sequel to the million copy bestseller The Miniaturist, The House of Fortune returns us to the mysterious Brandt family in Amsterdam in 1705 for a story of fate and ambition, secrets and dreams, and one young woman's determination to rule her own destiny.
