I had to buy this for a class I am taking online! This book should be available as a PDF or other eBook version. I got it at cheapest rate I could find, $126, but that is absolutely absurd and outrageous.

Not only is it paperback, but the quality of the interior pages is very thin and they can easily tear. I would not want to try and carry this in a backback or any carrying device, as it will damage easily.

Resale value is a joke.

There is nothing extra with this book, no special web access code nor CD, etc., so you DO NOT HAVE TO BUY IT NEW!

Fairly rudimentary, standard text book, better suited for 9th grade and NOT college level. More interesting and accessible info is available if you search the topics individually online.

For low vision readers, text is at about 12 point, if you are over 50, you will need reading glasses.

good info as far as textbooks go. the pages are cheap and tear easy, a little thin than I think a book that costs as much as it does costs. This to me is a $50 book brand new, not $120 or more as is it's MSRP. I found one used on Amazon in great condition at a fraction of what it would have cost new. I don't have a school bookstore to go buy used as I am an online student, and this book was not offered online. So tangible was needed. It's a paperback, thin as can be page over priced book. So if you can find it cheaper anywhere, do so. I will not be returning mine as I 'highlighted it to all heaven' and I would be anoyed to get a book in this condition if it was not my notes. I do however also thing that it is a good reasourse to keep for the subject mater covered. It is well written and easy to follow along for class, the chapters I warn you are a bit long.

I need this book for a class I am taking at school. First of all, I assumed this book would be exactly what it is in the picture, instead 10 business days later, I receive an instructors edition in horrible condition. The book is so worn and have these hideous and quite large USED BOOK black and neon green stickers all over the front, side, and back cover! Not that I care having a used book, I think they're great you don't have to spend as much money on books, but thats neither here nor there. Point is, this book is in horrible condition, and I am very disappointed with this purchase. DO NOT BUY!!

I got this book for a college history class I was taking. The book is well written and interesting; however, it seems to be rather anti-Catholic. The choice of words used to describe the Catholic Church and the actions of the Catholic's during that time period seemed to be rather inflammatory. Other than that, the book was an interesting read and well written. One of the best history books I have read as part of a class.

This is what I needed for class. It may not have been in the best shape, but it works. This has great detailed information in it. Perfect for adding history to my novel as well.

I purchased this used book for college. I've never done this before but the new one is so expensive. It was in better shape than I expected. Thank you.
