History is like time travel sometimes, you read through time as you turn the pages. Our selection this month brings you a travel guide in Elizabethan England where you get to know what it was like to live then. You can borrow a World history for dummies and a superb book compiling photographs submitted by Reuters photojournalists. You can read about the post-America world, the history of the infamous Guantanamo Bay prison, and the roaring twenties. And if you are interested in Pharaohs, women during WWI and ‘Para-Param’ local history, then check out this month’s History Recent Picks.
