'Another excellent overview of world history, compiled from Charles Kovacs' copious lesson notes.

Charles Kovacs (1907-2001) was born in Austria. He left his native country in 1938 and joined the British Army in East Africa. After the War, he settled in Britain, and in 1956 he took over a class at the Rudolf Steiner School in Edinburgh, where he remained a class teacher until his retirement in 1976. His extensive lesson notes have been a useful and inspiring resource material for many teachers and homeschoolers.
