    Must Book For UPSC

    This is a must book for GS Paper 1 for UPSC. Its a one time investment. Don't Think much, buy it. The explanation given is very easy to understand. Book by Arjun Dev is very Boring to read, though a thin book, but I too found it boring and not upto the level for writing mains' analytical answers.

    Plz don't rely on many books just stick to NCERT( for events before the era (industrial revolution, imperialism etc.) and this book; for World History.

    All the best :)

    Wonderful

    I haven't started to read this book yet, so i am not commenting about the book content.
    Flipkart delivered the book in time, but it looks little old. Pages are more like a photocopy type, don't know it is a original copy or not.
    Cover page is also different from what FK had shown.

    Item delivered does not have the same cover as depicted in picture. Most probably a photocopied material.

    Coaching Materials are Copy Paste of this books

    This is a good book for Modern World History (1900) onwards.

    some portions are not covered such as feudalism, Industiral revolution, french Revolution, American Revolution. Read those from NCERT 9 and 10 (old edition) or internet. Rest is covered in this book

    Good luck

    Awesome Book and uptodate

    This book is written for AS level and for other American system education related students who are doing masters in History.
    But if you are a true lover of world history and know how to respect a book, this is for YOU.
    Not many people can handle it you must have heard of "INDIAN CRAB PULLING"
    This happened with me when I saw this book to my friends and instead they began pulling my leg that they never heard of author ....blah....hlabh!
    However for those who want to study the modern history an...
