Events That Changed the World through the Sixteenth Century


Except for the twentieth century, the period from the late Middle Ages through the sixteenth century witnessed the most significant developments in the history of the world. From the expulsion of the Muslims from Spain, through the flowering of the Renaissance, the religious strife of the Reformation, and the attempts by great empires to conquer their own continent and expand into the New World, the enormous political, religious, and social changes that took place on every continent of the globe are examined. These events and their impact have been carefully described and analyzed in this useful student resource.
