Merriman manages to be both complete and descriptive without being long-winded, which is a major accomplishment for a history textbook. I first read this book in the spring of 2009 for a college course called "Revolutionary Europe: 1789 to 1989" and am currently reading Chapters 12-22, from the French Revolution to the First World War (1789-1914), in preparation for a course I am taking in the fall of 2010 on 19th century Europe.

Read this for History 202- Easily readable but sometimes hard to follow as he jumps back and forth through time by grouping the book into themes.
