With clarity and purpose, the authors convey how events grow from other events, people's actions, and broad structural changes (sequence), how apparently disconnected events occurred in close chronological proximity to one another and were situated in larger, shared contexts (simultaneity), and how history suddenly pivoted because of events, personalities, and unexpected outcomes (contingency).

Hi there! I would like to thank the seller for fast shipping. Product was like new, just as described. I am very happy with the purchase. However, the book itself is not good. The language used is very difficult in my opinion. If you are a good reader (which I am not) you might end up liking it.
