This is presented in a way unique to most history texts that I have had to use in seminars and classes. Each chapter is dominated by primary sources, which at times seem to have little to do with the unit in question, but at other times are very useful. I am using the kindle version, and I recommend that, as it is far more cost-effective, and this is not a book that you will likely be returning to after you have read the relevant sources once or twice. Good content, little real value.

Needed this book for a class at LSU. Probably would not have purchased it otherwise. Good luck to all taking this class.
