Press Reviews

'This book is published for use by Steiner School teachers but it is a marvellous read for anyone who would like to get to grips in a lively way with history. The book is written in an eminently readable and warm style. It will give young people a good, clear perspective on how, why and what went wrong in the past, and how we might find a better way for the future. I found The Age of Revolution interesting and enjoyable and long after having finished the book, I was able to recall much information I had read therein. Charles Kovacs certainly brought history "alive" for me and I recommend it both to adults wanting to enhance their understanding of past events, and as an excellent resource book for teachers.'-- Rosemary Usselman, New View, Autumn 2003
