The Humanistic tradition

At first glance the book looks like a mess of pictures thrown in to fill space. Once you start reading the text the contents makes sense.I have actually come across some of the subject matter in my everyday life, a lot of things that would of gone unnoticed.

Nice !!

Ordered and received the text within 7 days. Paid 1/2 of what I would have at the campus bookstore. New and in plastic wrap. 100% satisfied !!

A Great Study Companion

I have had to study this book over the course of the past year as a required text for my college classes. Either my other required texts bored me or this one is just that good, but this is the only book I did not sell back at the close of the year. I admire the style Fiero uses to convey mountains of information surrounding the twentieth century. The rhetoric of the book is conducive to any reader of high school capabilities or above yet does an excellent job of avoiding the type of over-simplification which can lead to misunderstanding and ignorance on any of the subjects which Fiero writes about. Most study reference books created today require that you buy four other books to comprehend the information from the original reference. Fiero avoids that hassle. The information provided is never so technical as to perplex and confuse its reader, instead offering a steady flow of fact and critique that covers all bases and satisfies most any set of professors. This was the finest study reference I had available as it is more than adequately organized chronologically. The beginning and closing remarks at each chapter offer a synopsis that not only link all the information you have just read but similarly binds it to everything before it and establishes a foundation for what will come after it. This book is not meant for leisure reading so please do not buy it for such a purpose. However, as a study tool covering any aspect of the twentieth century, I could not recommend a finer addition to any materials you have than Fiero.
