From the Publisher
"This work is recommended as a nonreference resource for high schools, colleges, and public libraries."
American Reference Books Annual
"This is more than a history text, however: it demonstrates how professional historians do detective work to resolve such mysteries even centuries later and provides reference keys to such investigations to encourage student investigation. An excellent key for teaching research tools."
"Mysteries in History from Prehistory to the Present… is a nifty compilation of puzzles that just might jog jaded undergraduates into an appreciation for the complexities of the past. Aron summarizes the controversial aspects of 75 historical questions—such as when people first arrived in America, who King Arthur was, where Columbus landed, how Davy Crockett died, whether Hitler murdered his niece, why Rudolf Hess flew to Scotland, and what Reagan knew about Iran-Contra—and offers some annotated suggestions for further reading."
