    Terribly organized, oversimplified views

    As a student I was horribly disappointed with the textbook. Often, where tables could be used to list important individuals and their accomplishments, the author simply listed them in a fairly unorganized manner. The difficulty I had in reading the book did not come from a lack of understanding the Spanish language. It came from poor organization and no apparent regard for communicating those ideas that are most important. The book also included a few factual errors. Several of them related to the treatment of Catholicism. The author cites 1976 for the expulsion of Archbishop Lefebvre from the Church when it was really in the late '80's. The 1976 penalty was a suspension of his faculties (which is different). The book also radically oversimplified what happened at the Second Vatican Council.
