    1. Though a just typical thick textbook concentrated on framework rather than details, this book is a captivating one that is hard to miss. Several features make it stand out:1. It is a really "global" history book emphasizing the common trend in both the Western World and the Eastern World during specific periods of time even before the discovery of the New World started the global epoch so the Western World and the Eastern World are more closely interwoven than ever.

Good maps as well are a bonus.
