"La división estructural en libros base y monografías referidas a hechos cruciales para la interpretación de la historia de los pueblos (conflictos, desarrollo social, cultural y tecnológico, vida cotidiana, pensamiento) permite tanto la comprensión global de la historia de la humanidad, como la profundización sobre determinados acontecimientos o aspectos generalmente ignorados en los manuales al uso. Los estudiantes encuentran así una forma atractiva y unas amplias posibilidades de su aplicación al estudio de las múltiples facetas del devenir histórico y de las diferencias culturales y sociales. Se combinan así los grandes acontecimientos históricos con aspectos referidos a la vida cotidiana, al pensamiento o a los avances tecnológicos. Se ofrece de este modo una pluralidad de recursos para la investigación individual o colectiva, y para el desarrollo de actividades sobre temas que, a su vez, relacionan la historia del pasado para la comprensión del mundo actual. Todos los libros de esta colección contienen abundantes ilustraciones, esquemas, mapas y gráficos aclaratorios de los textos, y han sido diseñados en un formato especialmente adecuado para la consulta y el trabajo de los alumnos y alumnas."
