what history book have you read?

"The Last Wolf" by Robert Winder is a great book that gives you a very different outlook on the shaping of national cultures. England is the country discussed in the book, but the approach applies to all European nations. His exploration into what defines the English / British cultures is based on a lucky set of natural ingredients: the island setting that made it maritime; the rain that fed the grass that nourished the sheep that provided the wool; the wheat fields that provided its cakes and ale; the seams of iron and coal that made it an industrial giant, etc.

I've read a series of History textbooks meant for elementary education. They were really old in some of them WWII wasn't even covered! But they were very enlightening, nicely written and with appropriate images, although they were in black and white. One series had 5 editions, each one covering Greek Civilization Ancient History, Medieval History, Modern History, and Contemporaneous History.
