This text has been written to accompany a popular option in the Intermediate History course. As the text is written for the Intermediate course, the approach is a source-based one, with progressive text and activities clearly differentiated in difficulty. Each chapter opens with a list of the main points to be covered, and contains numerous "What Do You Think?" sections, together with a range of primary and secondary source material. The end-of-chapter questions are pitched at both Intermediate 1 level (covering recall, evaluation and deriving data from sources) as well as Intermediate 2 extended-response questions. There is also a breakdown of how the exam is structured as well as ideas on how to tackle extended-response questions.
