History texbooks for sale

I’m finally getting round to getting rid of the mound of history textbooks that I have left over from my degree studies.

I’ve got a wide range of books on the following subjects – Early Modern European History, the Industrial Revolution, and modern European History. Also some textbooks on themes such as communism, class and social history.

All are in good condition, most were bought second hand but have not been used very much and are in good condition.

Far too many to list, but please take a look at my ebay account: Daly ebay

Please contact me for more information to discuss prices, payment and delivery etc.

    Any chance we can work a deal on Europe, 1880-1945 by J.M. Roberts (Paperback, 2000)? I’ll check with the wife tonight about shipping methods and such – she has several friends over by you that work for companies, might be able to sneak a freebie!

        An acquaintance who did history at Birmingham described his history course textbooks as the “sacred cannon of secondary stories.” We both agreed that the recommended books were often the ones to avoid. It is awkward at uni’ though when the recommended book is authored by the tutor recommending it! The lesson there being to avoid niche subject areas like heritage studies……

          we used to get that… ‘on sale at all good bookshops, and plenty of bad ones too’.

          There were two schools of thought about reading lists – do you go with the list, and hope to brown nose the tutor, or show some latitude and go and find your own books? I tended to do the latter, as literally seconds after the lists were handed out the library was emptied of the set texts. Similar books next to them on the shelf would still be there, so why not? I figured.

            I used that approach too. Keele’s main library was under funded, (unlike the library for the medical school) so choice was very limited. What I used to do was go straight from the lecture (or tutorial) to the library to avoid disappointment. The Chinese kids were sneeky and would go before! (Great kids I had a lot of time for them.)

            Another tactic I used was to read other texts from tutor’s favourite academics. Nothing flatters the academic ego than having their beliefs parroted back to them. ;) My heritage tutor/lecturer really likes Patrick Wright so that is what she got. (Actually it helped me with my essay on the National Trust as sources were thin on the ground. Got a first though!)

            BTW I should have said “cannon of secondary sources.” But the typo was funnier.
