MEDIA REVIEWS
The book is easy to read and use; the summaries are excellent for revision purposes. There are some good, and as yet unused, primary sources, for practice with candidates, and a wealth of illustrations to keep the readers interested...this is a book worthy of purchase. * SATH Resources Review *
