"Last semester I used your edition, SOURCES OF WORLD HISTORY, 2nd Edition, Vol. 1, in my lecture course. ... The narrative textbook covered western history proper, but your Sources was a valuable complement because it offers important extra-western texts. ... Thanks for your excellent edition; it leaves competitors in the dust."
