Editorial Reviews

"The first time I used Conrad and Hiller was the first time students complimented the textbook. I believe students like it because it is straightforward, engaging, and succinct. I like it for the same reasons and also because it balances political/imperial and social history and providesappropriate and compelling boxes." --Heidi MacDonald, University of Lethbridge
