Editorial Reviews

VOYA
The rationale for starting a war is often emotionally charged, confusing, and complex. Centuries of animosity, distrust, greed, and hate are part of the reasons why humans wage war against each other. In many instances, years of religious and political repression explode with devastating and lasting consequences. This new series attempts to dissect the underlying causes of five major wars, including the Iraq War, the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and the Revolutionary War. Racial prejudices fueled by ages-old conflicts led to the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand and became the catalyst for the beginning of World War I. Long-held resentments from World War I, increasing nationalism, and racial pride saw the rise in power of the tyrant Adolf Hitler prior to the beginning of World War II. Thirty years later in Iraq, the equally oppressive and cruel Saddam Hussein sought power and wealth by overthrowing the government and attempting to wipe out entire groups of ethnic minorities. Eventually the United States stepped in and played a major role in each of these wars. This series is presented in clear, detailed, and precise language, making it an excellent source for middle and junior high school students. Plenty of primary documents in the form of maps, photographs, posters, and political cartoons expand the material. Each book has a list of relevant people and their impact on a specific war. High school students will use the series as a starting point to their research. The authors include a very helpful suggested bibliography for older students and Internet resources.
