I just received my copy of 'Image, History, and Politics: The Coinage of Modern Europe' and can't put it down! The book provides excellent information and referencing that every historian, especially those that find history economically based, should have on hand. The book provides the detailed pictures and research for you! I base several of the units I teach for one of my courses on Economical History on it.

Martin Luther, Leonardo D'Vinci, Napoleon Bonaparte, Karl Marx. Ha. Who needs these puny little figures in history? Instead there should stand one man, a man so great that he can never find a piece of chalk. A man who can stare Doritos in the face and laugh. A man who's name means Prussian Nobility (well not really, there's a A instead of a O, but does it matter.) A man who worked in the fields for 12 hours a day. A man whose wardrobe matches that Calvin Klein guy. This man, strong, tall, kind-of-smart: Paul van Wie. Read his book and you shall see what a master piece is. Read it a second time and see what the masterpiece of time is. Read it backwards the third time and it will reveal the secret message 'Why are you reading my book for the third time? Go study for the AP test!'
