The Traveller's History Series

The Traveller's History series is designed for travellers who want more historical background on the country they are visiting than can be found in a tour guide. Each volume offers a complete and authoritative history of the country from the earliest times up to the present day.

A Gazetteer cross-referenced to the maintext pinpoints the historical importance ofsights and towns. Illustrated with maps and line drawings, this literate and lively series makes ideal before-you-go reading, and is just as handy tucked into suitcase or backpack.

Media Reviews

"An excellent new series of brief histories." -The New York Times

"... provides excellent insights to the earliest days through the current years of each country with maps and sketches." -The Travelore Report
