You know what they say, history is the best teacher. And until we take a leaf out of our favorite sci-fi books and make time travel a real thing, History books are our best resources for visiting the past.

Chronicling the rise and fall of civilizations, this list of History books scouted by our forward-thinking team of Reedsy Discovery reviewers are sure to give you retrospective insight into some of the world's past lives. Dive into the Renaissance, swing your way into the Jazz Age, explore Ancient Egypt, or dine with the Plantagenets — with History books, the world is your oyster!

If you want to stay up-to-date on the best History books right here on Reedsy Discovery, simply “follow” your favorite reviewers to see what they like — and join the ranks of people who know that "those who don't know history are destined to repeat it."
