I Also Recommend:
This book is outstanding. Like all of Morgan's writing, this is proof positive that often less is more.
The key to Morgan's writing is its efficiency. Unlike so many in contemporary academia, who are flat-out guilty of shameful self-indulgent over-writing (not to mention often doing so incoherently), Morgan's works are cogent. The flow of his narrative is nothing short of superb.
These essays largely stick to what Morgan does best: Provide a structural analysis of an area of historical inquiry, pick out the main two or three themes, and stay keenly focused on them.
His writing should be mandatory reading for all college students, not just for its content, but as a modicum of how to write clearly and effectively.
