Publisher's Summary

How did we get here, to this time and place in history? Are we repeating history's mistakes because we did not learn about the pivotal events that shaped the modern world?

This three-book history course helps you quickly understand the nuances and the impact of three crucial periods portrayed in countless films: the Crusades and of the rise and fall of two great empires, the Roman and British.

The culture, technology, law, and military organization of the Roman Empire shaped western civilization. Determined to spread their rule, the Romans succeeded magnificently until human nature and other factors led to the empire's collapse.

Were current relationships between Christians and Muslims determined when the knights of the Crusades rode off on their grand quest?

By the beginning of the 20th century, the British Empire and its superior navy claimed territory larger than that of any other empire in history, but its overreach foretold its downfall. This insightful and critically acclaimed history of the British Empire spans from the 17th century to contemporary time and combines comprehensive scholarship with popular history.

I wish that I could figure out how to return it.

I dont understand who this was for. it's totally incomprehensible for beginners of
history, but was full of basic information that just skimmed over the surface of each subject, so it cant be for anyone who is familiar with history.

the whole thing reads like a badly written introduction to a to a larger academic book. the writing jumped from one subject to another with little to no focus on what it was talking about.

I saw the bad reviews and gave it a chance anyway. don't make my mistake.

Intellectually vacuous and dry recitation of facts

Intellectually vacuous and dry recitation of facts. States conclusions and dismisses other point of view as not worth of consideration. Not with your time.
