Overall, I think this text responds to the problem of getting students to think "historically;" that is, to demonstrate the ability to derive information from primary and secondary sources and to weigh the reliability of these sources, and to critically evaluate diverse interpretations of the same historical event…I applaud what the authors have done. In students, it should inspire active learning, critical thinking, and a deeper engagement with the material than a typical textbook could accomplish.

I am excited about this text book because it teaches skill development as well as context. I also like the chapter organization around a problem. The "Further Reading" suggestions also provide ideas for supplementing lesson plans and providing students with more breadth about a subject or region.

Students will find this work helpful when trying to find the primary sources to support their arguments especially in their research assignments.
