Top Customer Reviews
The book is organized by the types of writing of the authors noted, from Machiavelli to Marx's Communist Manifesto.
The essay questions were challenging, but really designed to make the student think about the topics being proposed by each author.
I enjoyed working with this book and chose NOT to sell it back (despite that I could have used the money!) because I'd like to work with it on my own.
