This was an odd book. The writing was decent, the pictures reasonably well-placed, and it's a succinct summation of a complicated series of events. But the book starts (and ends) like it's a chunk of a college textbook. I don't mean that it was dense, but that the reader is dropped into the content (and ends the book) in a very abrupt, awkward way This was very, very clearly written by academics with no experience creating popular history, but who were trying to do just that.

In terms of content,
