The Internet History Sourcebooks
are collections of public domain and copy-permitted historical texts presented clearly (without advertising or excessive layout) for educational use. There are four main source books: Ancient History, Medieval History, Modern History, Byzantine Studies. Other History Sourcebooks include: African, East Asian, Global, Indian, Islamic, Jewish, Lesbian and Gay, Science, Women. The Global History Sourcebook explores the interaction between world cultures. It does not look at history as that of separate cultures, but at ways in which the “world” has a history in its own right. Trade, War, Religion, Empire, and Arts and Music are organizing themes.
