2150 A History of the Modern World Second Edition, by R. R. Palmer, Revised with the Collaboration of Joel Colton (read 21 June 1988) I paid a nickel for this 1956 book at a rummage sale, so I figured I should read it rather than let my money go to waste. It is obviously intended as an introduction for college students, and I cannot say I really enjoyed it. I almost feel as if after reading this 900-page plus book I have not learned a thing. It covers so much I have read so much on. In one sentence it covers a topic I've read a book on, and of course so much has happened since 1956. ( )

My trusty old AP European History textbook. Don't leave home without it. ( )

This was the textbook for the AP European history class I took in high school. The title is a misnomer—Palmer and Cotton's book is a history of modern Europe and the rest of the world only isasmuch as it was conquered by Europeans. That solecism aside, this is a fine survey of western history. ( )
