A Nice Textbook Review of 200 Yrs of European Hist
What did you love best about A Concise History of Modern Europe?
Good overview of the period and most of the players in the subject. I liked the narrator's style which was most appropriate for the tome. Engagingly professorial without being preachy.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I almost did as I listened to it on a long trip by car. Chapter breaks were good though as moved to different national/time-frame focus.
Any additional comments?
Good general text. Helped me refresh my remembrances of the subject so I could better help my HS daughter with her history. Perhaps a bit light for use as a full course textbook but could make for beneficial supplementary reading. All kidding aside, it really was a concise overview. Seemed a bit Northern Euro-centric though. Spain was largely left out of the flow.
