Great History Lessson August 15, 2011
by
This is a really insightful textbook; I would recommend it for anyone who is interested in 20th century history. History is too often viewed by non-historians as a chronology of inevitable events. Reading this textbook made it all seem up in the air and unfolding before my eyes. I would rate the seller 5 stars and I plan to buy from ecampus again in the future.
