New Issue of History Now: Books that Changed History
Issue 16, June 2008: Books that Changed History
The Gilder Lehrman Institute is pleased to present the sixteenth issue of History Now, a quarterly online journal for history teachers and students, available at www.historynow.org.
Every teacher knows that a novel can sometimes convey the mood and spirit of a historical era or event more powerfully than a textbook. And every teacher also knows that some novels have even made history. These are books that every student ought to read. In this issue, History Now focuses on six “books that changed history,” placing each one in its historical context and suggesting why it remains relevant today.
Don't miss this issue's interactive feature, which provides a striking visual exploration of antebellum America through illustrations of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s famous novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin.
