Review: World History in Brief, Volume II (Chapters 14-33)User Review - Crystal - Goodreads
This was the textbook for my World Civilizations II class in college. I remember thinking it a good overview. Admittedly, though, the course didn't rely on the book for most of its assignments. Read full review
Review: World History in Brief: Major Patterns of Change and Continuity (MyHistoryLab Series)User Review - Goodreads
This is about all the reading I can handle right now! For a history text, it is very well written and pretty interesting. Not a lot of emphasis on specific names and dates, more of a general overview of basic themes. I actually ended up reading this entire History text and I enjoyed it.
