I learned more from my junior history class w/out even reading the book than I did with this book. I can actually recall events and fill them in where this book is severely lacking... Isn't this supposed to be college level? Tch

Arrived as promised and in promised condition. Rental. The text itself, however, I did not like as a history book at all. I am a well-educated and well-read person and I had trouble following this one. It jumped from one president to the next and back again without including dates or other ways of figuring out where you were in a historical context and most chapters left me without the knowledge I should have had when finished. It also totally avoided the Holocaust in the historical content and I have a major issue with that. When the professor has to provide a lot of outside reading for you to get the information you need, it is not a good textbook.

I am very pleased with the service. However, the book was starting to fall apart when I received it. This book has been very helpful in my History class.
