Wow! I am in this class and I need a book and not just any book but this specific book. I am thinking to myself there is no way I am ever going to find this book (in my price range). Well thank you again Amazon.com for being my hero in textbook searches.

I ordered this book because it was required for a class I took. I actually did not enjoy the book at all because it was not a topic I was interested in but this is written well. I would order from this seller again.

I needed this book for my college history class and I can say that it was worth it. Non-expensive and has all the material that my history course covers. I bought it used but it was in great condition.

I had to get this text for a world history class, and I was very glad that I did pay the extra to get the hard copy instead of just reading the digital. I found this so useful, that I retained it for reference material for my other courses, as a lot of International Relations problems have their roots in History that is simply not common knowledge (though it ought to be). I will have to get Volume 2 when I can afford to.
