Interesting and Concise,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: An Introduction to the History of Western Europe (Kindle Edition)
I "purchased" this item at Kindle Store for free.
It is a well written concise and short introduction to History of Western Europe. The book was first published in 1902 and it can be out of date in some periods of history in which historians managed to get more information over these past decades. Nevertheless, as a non-historian I found the book really interesting. After the end of each chapter, the author presents a couple of references for those interested in reading more about a giving topic.
I am not giving 5 starts, because in my opinion some maps could facilitate comprehension and were not included. Instead the author simply mentions: regions, rivers, cities, etc. I am not sure how good was the editorial process in 1902, probably not good enough to include so many illustrations in a book like this one. At any rate, worth reading!
