Description:This site is actually the equivalent to three books on different areas of European History (see author’s description below). The material appears to be complete and reasonably well-written, and there are plenty of extras—lots and lots of links, an entertaining collection of quotes called <a href="http://www.historyguide.org/history.html">What is History?</a>, and more.

While the content may be good, the navigation is lacking a little. To get from one lecture (equivalent to a chapter) to the next, you have to go back to the table of contents then select the next one. There’s also no search feature or index, although each book does have a pretty thorough site map separate from the table of contents.

Navigation aside, there’s no reason these books couldn’t be used in a classroom, and in fact the author has used all of them in his own classes for more than a decade. Enjoy!

From the home page:

The History Guide has been created for the high school and undergraduate student who is either taking classes in history, or who intends to major in history in college. The purpose of The History Guide is to better prepare yourself for your history classes and to make your time in class more enjoyable and proficient.

The History Guide contains the complete content of three undergraduate courses in European history which will certainly be of use to those of you studying such topics at the college level or in A.P. European history classes. The History Guide contains ninety lectures in European history from ancient Sumer to the fall of Soviet-style communism in 1989. In essence, what is presented here is an online textbook in western civilization, with special reference to the western intellectual tradition.

Parents engaged in home schooling their children will find much that is of interest and I urge you to contact me if there are any details I can help provide to you.
