Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The magazine design made the text really fun to read. Textbooks get boring, it is the same thing page after page. The magazine feeling made me want to read it more intently."

"This is totally revolutionary for me. I'm very impressed. I truly believe that its simplicity give it its strength."

"The writing is clear. [Students] will like that. It is visually 'chunked' into clearly connected but manageable portions. They can read as many or as few chunks as they like at each sitting. They will like the brevity and the opportunity to follow up a reading with some online exploration. … The text is invitingly concise yet it is fact-laden AND all the facts are presented within the context of a theme or argument. … I like the basic organization … a great deal. Everything is orderly and logical. I would have no trouble synchronizing my pre-existing lectures with this text. I especially like the straightforward writing, the short sections, the clear headings, and the concise nature of the explanations (with a lot of lists of causes and/or effects to lead into or to summarize a section). The writing reminds me of several of my favorite texts. … As I stated earlier, I greatly anticipate the appearance of the print version of your text. The combination of a short text that students can develop a tactile relationship with--and that we can all bring to the class sessions--with online interactives, visuals, and written primary sources would be a perfect match for my students and my teaching style."

"I think the overall vision of the product is unique and has a lot of potential especially for summer or distance learning classes. … I love the interactive modules. I always think those are wonderful. Was nice to see links to art. … I find myself pleasantly surprised that something so relatively short could cover what I'd want covered and do it so well."

"I am interested in this text. In my experience, students find history texts a morass of details. This text does a good job of breaking the narrative into small, manageable pieces, and arranging information in clear, outline form. … I think that dividing the material into short, manageable parts is a very good idea. Some students may benefit from the outline structure, since most students today seem not to have been taught how to create an outline."

    GREAT History Book!!!!!! : )

    HIST volume 2 by KEVIN M. SCHULTZ was by far the best History I have had to read through my lifetime of History classes. The first appearance of the book itself makes you want to pick up the book and take a look inside and that is a vague statement made by a college student because to be honest, how many history books have you picked up and just want to start reading. The structure and layout of the book makes you feel like you are reading a magazine rather than a history book and the best part of this is the book isn't bulky and doesn't weigh 500 pounds to carry around like most history books.
    The book is well organized, easy to follow, uses images which is nice to have when reading about history so you can imagine what you are reading, and one of my favorite parts of this book are the chapter reviews in the back of the book. These reviews give you the time line of the section that you are reading, followed by a full summary of each section in the chapter and on the margins of the reviews are definitions of all the important terms and people in the chapter. Having these reviews benefited me greatly. What I would do before I read each chapter is read the review so I knew something about what I was about to go into depth with when reading the chapter. Then before the midterms and final these reviews helped tremendously to review and refresh my memory.
    Another aspect I enjoyed while reading this book is that while reading each chapter I felt like I was reading a story rather than just a list of a bunch of facts through out history. The book gives wonderful examples and does a great job with the pictures they use and I love how the book pulls out important quotes made by the people they are talking about in history. Ultimately, this is a great history book for students who want to be fully engaged in history, which could be beneficial to professors as well. I am currently a college student who just took a history class that was based off of this book and a student where history has been a week point my entire life and well, this book made it worth wild to read it!
