Review: The Great Documents of Western Civilization

User Review  - -- - Goodreads

I prefer primary sources to secondary sources, although, midway through reading this book, I was reminded why normal people don't read old treaties, speeches, contracts, etc. (they're boring.) Nonetheless, I'm glad to have read this book. Read full review
