I bought this book for my 2nd semester European History class, as it was initially assigned by the teacher. BIG MISTAKE. this book contains about 7 primary sources in all and the rest is chocked full of spelling errors. I'm not OCD or in anyway about my spelling, but if you actually expect me to believe this book was written by anyone with a head on their shoulders it's probably best to get an editor that can do his job, or you know... actually learn how to write.

It's an okay textbook. It tells you what you need to know for the class, but the information is presented in a -sometimes overtly and sometimes covertly- opinionated manner rather than an empirical and objective one.

Thankfully, I have a very skilled and educated professor who is able to utilize the book in a way that is satisfactory and beneficial to the class.
