This review is from: Traditions & Encounters: A Global Perspective on the Past: AP Edition (Hardcover)

I am a parent of high school student who's using this textbook for AP Global Studies. My son kept complaining about how dull this book is. "How can that be?" I wondered. The period of history they're studying now is fascinating and the kids should be really intrigued. I decided to take matters into my own hands. I read the book myself. Holy Toledo. The only way writing like this could come to exist is by committee. It's all so generalized that it's almost laughable. The sentences are deadly dull. I am astounded. Any self-respecting English teacher would give this kind of writing a failing grade. Not only does this book give students the idea that writing like this is OK, it is so watered down and lacking any interesting details that it will likely extinguish any spark of interest in world history that an intellectually curious kid might have.

Take an afternoon and peruse this title, it's really quite fascinating the kind of details that modern history classes glance over.

Everthing said on the book as described. Few notes on the book, but the book works great on my assignments.

Service was great, I received the book well before the scheduled delivery time. The book was in perfect condition even though it was classified as used. The price was cheaper than my local college bookstore price for used books (They did not have any available when I checked with them.) I was quite pleased with everything about the transaction. I had read a couple of reviews about the source of the book that indicated people were not recommending them but my experience could not have been better. Great going, guys.
