Bought it for class 18 Nov. 2010
By Me - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this textbook for a college history class. This is the worst textbook! Dates in it rarely match what you find elsewhere. You finish reading a section, thinking you're going on to the next time period, when you really just go on to a different aspect of that same period. I don't like the way it is organized at all. Even the items in the index are off. I would want to find more information about a subject, so I'd look stuff up in the index, which would not even list the page that I had just found it on. I had to resort to a LOT of internet research for the class that required this book.
