World Eras

Our subscription to the Gale Virtual Reference Library now has access to the World Eras set of encyclopedias. The ten volumes in the set include: European Renaissance and Reformation, Rise and Spread of Islam, Roman Republic and Empire, Medieval Europe, Ancient Egypt, Classical Greek Civilization, Imperial China, Ancient Mesopotamia, Industrial Revolution in Europe, and West African Kingdoms. You can find them in the History section of the GVRL.

Each volume follows the same pattern, with sections on geography, the arts, communications, social classes, politics and law, daily life including leisure activities and recreation, family and society, religion and philosophy, science and technology, and a relevant glossary.
