Review:

?I like this book more than the Gilbert and Large because it does a better job overall balancing coverage of politics with coverage of social, economic and cultural themes.?

?When choosing a book I look for one that tries to balance history, economics, politics, society, and culture without overly embracing one of these to the neglect of something else. That is no easy task and I believe that this book does that successfully and the revisions continue that tradition.?
