    Just about ok

    I bought this book to prepare the 'world history' part of Civil Services Mains GS Paper I. Considering the lack of good Indian books on the topic, this is a welcome effort.

The link between events is not established very well and there is ambiguity in the text, sometimes also because of grammatical errors, excessive use of passive voice and pronouns. It does not take ...
