      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Best book for begginers

    The writing style of this book is excelent. Very helpful for objective questions. The writer, although from London, has succesfully remained unbiased. Those who don't have any knowledge about twentieth century, there is no other book for you to start with.

    One disadvantage is that it does not have anything about Afganistan and Taliban issue.

    A Non- Conventional Text Book Approach

    Norman Lowe has endured the test of time in plethora of textbook on Modern World History. The writing style is unique. It keeps reader interested and engaged by giving facts in a nutshell way and analyses causes and consequences of every aspect of Modern World history beautifully. There is a forewarning: It's a textbook and does not have detailed analysis of every aspect of timeline in Modern world History. The argumentative approach is also missing understandably owing to paucity of space. ...
