Wayne C. McWilliams is emeritus professor and Harry Piotrowski is professor in the Department of History at Towson University. Product was a bit overpriced, in my opinion, but definitely cheaper than the schools bookstore. As for the textbook, I admittedly did not use it much during the course until I NEEDED it for a final project/paper. It really came through in the clutch for me, after being a paperweight most of the semester. As an average "C" student I was able to earn a "B" on my final paper and even earned a "B" in the class.

I owe much of that to the ease and informativeness of this textbook.

I really enjoyed this text and I thought it did a great job of assisting me in my history class regarding globalization. It was very comprehensive but also easy to read and not "too wordy". Really an enjoyable book I would recommend it to others.

Well written and interesting. History textbooks can be pretty dry but this one is good. I'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for a good world history primer.

this great book is for sale for much less directly from the publisher. use the isbn, not the amazon product number. this is an overpriced con entry.
Overall, a good explanation of world history from the mid-Twentieth Century to the present. However when it comes to US presidents and their administrations, the political opinions of the authors are very apparent, which is something I consider to be an example of professional malpractice. The Democrats are consistently projected as American heroes, and when mentioning their mistakes cannot be avoided, excuses are made for them. Whereas to the contrast, Republican presidents are consistently projected as terrible villains. As someone who is politically independent, I find this to be a form of attempted indoctrination. This greatly discredits the authors. I want material to be taught straight down the middle as much as humanly possible. I would be just as upset if this were written with a strong Republican slant.
