Book Review #1171
Western Civilizations by Judith G. Coffin and Robert C. Stacey
Rating: three stars (out of four)
This did a pretty good job of summarizing and explaining western civilizations, (though my professor pointed out dryly that it went far too fast in certain chapters and often skipped centuries of knowledge) and it had interesting pictures and relevant fact tables/charts. The chapters felt long, but that's probably because I wasn't enamoured with this subject. I did enjoy the class though because my teacher had the wickedest sense of humor and would say hilarious things in class that most people missed because they were dozing off.
