Top Customer Reviews
Even though this book is the first half of western history (it goes to about 1700), it seemed to only delve into women as the only demographic that needed special mention outside of the normal flow of text, there didn't seem to be any additional in depth information about how Africans, the natives of the "New World," or Asians contributed to Western Civilization.
Additionally, the book was in fairly poor condition. It was usable but had serious water damage, cover wear, and binding wear. If you intend to order this book for class, make sure you leave yourself time to return it.
