    One thought on “The Western Heritage”

    1. This year, I read this book for my AP Euro class. Not the most exciting, but definitely better than the AP US book! I love European history, but my teacher's lectures were what I really looked forward to, and what I think will help me most on the big test coming up in May. The book really focused on the economic and political aspect of events rather than the actual action, which kind of made me feel like I missed the all the good parts of history and the emotional part of reading I look for in b [...]

    2. This book gave a very basic overview of European history. It failed to include important political developments, concentrating mainly on social changes. While social changes are incredibly important to history, knowing where one is in the political atmosphere is just as important. I would not recommend this book to any AP European History class, where I first encountered it.

    3. Finally finished with the AP test, so there is no longer a need to carry this thing round with me everywhere I go. Finally.As far as history textbooks go, this isn't a bad one, although the bias sometimes irritates me. I don't really have to read this again, so I guess it's not so much of a problem.

    4. This was a required text for my college World History class. It's very dry, which makes it difficult to read. I actually fell asleep twice while reading it, which has never happened to me before. Normally I would have sold it once the class was over, but I've held onto it for reference for my genealogy research.

    5. mine is definitely by the same authors and is a sixth edition, not sure what this 'combined edition' is, though.
