There is one thing this book needs .... electronic version! I bought it used because it was a textbook and nether the writer or the publisher receive a thing when this is done. I will sell it just because it is paper and I don't keep many paper books any more. I would have gladly paid the price for a Kindle version because of the search-ability of that format. I would love to have this book as a resource in my library but paper just does not allow the quick reference that electronic books provide.
This book is worth the read even if you are not required to do so for a class. History lovers will enjoy it.
