In Daily Life through History students and researchers can discover details about past eras that make historical accounts relevant and meaningful from their modern-day perspectives
What did people used to eat, wear, or use? What did they hope for, laugh about, or sing in the shower—or did they even have showers? These are the kinds of questions inquisitive students of history ask, and the information to answer these inquiries is precisely what is missing in many available reference resources.
A truly unique landmark reference product, Daily Life through History (DLtH) explores ordinary life through time and across the globe, bringing the past to life through details and insights that turn flat descriptions of historical characters into real, “just like me” human beings. DLtH supports courses in American history and literature, ties closely to national curricula and standards, and is an outstanding, cross-disciplinary resource for examining historical topics like food and cooking, celebrations, clothes, romance, work, religion, housing, language, and social customs. Additionally, the exclusive Analyze sections prompt inquisitive critical thinking by presenting intriguing questions and challenging students to create their own informed opinions.
The release of Daily Life through History enables easier printing and email capabilities to make research and writing projects more convenient, while current MLA, Chicago, and APA citations make the bibliographic process straightforward. The revised arrangement of information provides easy access to overview sections that provide the big picture while integrated reference entries examine specific topics in detail.
