      This book is a concise, easy-to-understand summary of US history. As a non-US citizen, I found the book highly educational and engaging. History is a potentially boring topic, but the book sticks to exciting plot points and the most 'famous' events and characters that any interested non-American should know/5(81).

More precisely, the shadow of his failure. This poetic conclusion by a serious historian, after nearly five hundred pages of tracing Eurasian history over more than six hundred years seems to be the perfect way of describing the beauty of the words within. After Tamerlane is extremely deterministic in nature.4/5.
