Review:

"In comparison with my current text, EV is more sophisticated in its analysis and writing. It goes deeper, and does a better job of explaining complex events without lengthy, boring prose."

"The text has many strengths. It is very well-written and clearly organized, so that students should have few problems following the narrative and understanding the major sections and discussions."
