    Similar to other books from Chicago Review Press, this one takes students on a tour of Isaac Newtons life, pairing the story with activities that explore his ideas and the times he lived in. The book begins with a timeline depicting the major accomplishments in Newtons life, and is followed by ten chapters, covering from his precarious first days to his death in 1727. Along with the text, occasional activities are included, like making ink similar to how Newton would have. In the chapter on Newtons work with light, readers can make a prism, observe Newtons Rings in a piece of glass, and understand the inverse square law by moving away from a light source and detecting the amount of light available. Although written from a secular perspective, the book shares Isaac Newtons intense interest in God and his struggle with the concept of the Trinity. A fascinating combination of biography and historical scientific activities. 132 pgs, pb. Jess

    A little-known love of Sir Isaac Newton was history. He certainly didnt become famous for his historical writings, but if you were to pause for a while to read some passages, you would find his writings to be logical, well researched, and chronologically sound. This work digs deeply into dates the emphasis being on the accuracy of the dating of ancient kingdoms. Newtons investigations into the dating of ancient events and people, which he cross-references with the biblical timeline (which he assumed to be correct) and various pieces of ancient literature, brings into question the accuracy of most secular histories. Newtons work demonstrates that some of the most widely held beliefs about the dating of ancient history are founded upon works that are little more than elaborate fiction! Was the Great Pyramid really built around 2800 BC, as most historians claim? Or was it actually closer to 800 BC, based on the fact that certain Egyptian dynasties that show up in some historical writings are almost certainly fictitious? Newton gives us a better way to look at history, and to read the dates we might otherwise take for granted. Originally published in 1728, and now revised and edited to make 21st Century reading easier, this book would be a very useful companion to any study of history. Included are notes of some of the editing changes and appendices which include a list of the kings of ancient empires, an explanation into the period of Nabonassar, a glossary of terms, gleanings from Archbishop Ussher, an alias list (an English example would be William = Bill), and an exhaustive index. 8 ½ x 11 hardcover format with 205 pgs.

    Genevieve Foster is well known for her distinctive approach to teaching history. Firmly believing that history is drama, Miss Foster presents an engaging narrative of William Penns life as well as those of his contemporaries throughout the world. Part one begins in 1660 and introduces us to William Penn, how he became a Quaker, his quest for religious freedom and how he received Pennsylvania. We then learn of his contemporaries including: the journeys of three French explorers: Marquette, Joliet and LaSalle; Louis XIV, the King of France, who ruled for seventy two years; mogul emperors of India and the Taj Mahal; the great age of Science (Sir Isaac Newton and Edward Halley); Kang-Hse the great Manchu ruler of China and Peter the Great of Russia. We also revisit William Penn and learn of the many disasters that he experienced and how he came to return to England for his final days. Black and white illustrations, SC, 192 pgs. ~ Deanne

    It sure is! Its about time someone made an inexpensive, spiral-bound timeline affordable enough to use for specific studies or for one-year use. Even the most frugal homeschool mom can justify the cost of this history aid for each student. Timelines are a wonderful tool for putting events and people into context as they are studied during the year - if you can get your children into the timeline habit. Reading about Isaac Newton and the discovery of gravity in science? Chart it! Using the Phythagorean theorem in math? Put in on! Reading Beowulf in literature? Add it, too! You get the idea. By the end of the year, they should have a great visual overview of the year to reflect back on. Another great feature of this timeline is its flexibility. You customize the pages to fit your needs. Each divided column can be a year, decade, century, or whatever you decide. Focus in or get the big picture - it adapts to your needs. The shaded row along the center can be used to record the time periods for that page. The shaded row at the top can contain a page title, or period designation. Divided lines that separate the ruled columns can also be used to categorize entries by topic or subject area. Blank form pages and a sample page gives ideas on customizing timeline.

    Throughout history, great philosophers have influenced everything from science to politics to religion. Their ideas have shaped the way we look at the world in general. This book tells about the 100 most influential philosophers of Western culture, showing how their ideas have impacted the world. The philosophers are basically presented chronologically, starting with Thales of Miletus around 620 BC and ending with W.V.O Quine, who died in 2000. Both popular and lesser-known (but still very influential) philosophers are included like Socrates, William of Occam, Sir Isaac Newton, Voltaire, George Berkeley, Thomas Paine, Charles Darwin, Sigmund Freud, and many more. For each philosopher, the book presents a full-page black and white illustration or photograph of the person and then a double-column text page full of information about them. Its only a page-worth of information, so youre not getting a comprehensive biography about each figure, but the book is great at summarizing the main achievements, ideas, and contributions of each person, while it explains the lasting effect left and how modern philosophers view that figure. 218 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
