Mystery of History Volume IV is the last and final volume of the Mystery of
History series covering 1708 to 2014.

This course is designed to nurture a love for World History in the student
using an engaging and straightforward text. This class will center on
exploring world history through:

  • participating in engaging activities that promote recall of important  facts and critical thinking
  • building a deeper understanding of the timeline of world history,
  • along with key players and events
  • mapping activities that aid students in understanding the setting of
  • historical events
  • engaging in dynamic classroom discussion on historical topics

Mystery of History Volume IV begins with Bach and Handel and brings the
reader through multiple "wars of independence" and "wars of ideologies"
between Marxism, Darwinism, Fascism, and the Cold War. World War I
and II bring the reader to more modern-day conflicts, including a
collapsed Soviet Union, a divided Korea, tension in the Middle East, and
an ongoing War on Terror.

In addition to studying the violence of this era, the artists, inventors,
writers, and humanitarians who contributed toward the soul of mankind
over the last three centuries are also integrated. A world history text,
Mystery of History IV does cover important events in American history
(though it cannot stand alone as an American history course and counts
instead as a World History credit), including the American Revolution, the
War Between the States, the War in Vietnam, and the Civil Rights
