well i dont know what any of them are about (besides what the titles say..) but the rise and fall of the great powers sounds interesting.

I even have each, although I placed the Princeton one greater suitable. I comparable to the way it was once written, as nicely it places the falls after the civilization, so merely bear in mind that, and it does no longer have evaluate questions. yet entire, I cherished the Princeton one greater suitable. I even have not taken the AP examination yet, notwithstanding if I won an A on the final very final year & A on the midterm utilising it (we take the path in 2 years). :]
