This is another excellent overview of world history, compiled by Charles Kovacs' copious lesson notes as Steiner-Waldorf teacher. Though the published year is older, it’s still highly requested as a useful resource by many homeschool parents. 

The overview of world history ranges from from the time of the Crusades to the Renaissance and was written to be used for Waldorf Class 7 (age 12-13).

Throughout, Kovacs is keen to convey to the reader the notion of cause and effect and the inter-relatedness of world events.

Any teacher or homeschooling family of the 12-13 age group/Class 7 will find this book an excellent resource.

Though there are newer books on the market that you should also explore and use ; however, Kovacs’ has remained a valuable resource for decades.
