I had great hopes for this book but it ended up being a disaster – the authors didn’t even make an ounce of effort to talk about anything else besides North America and a very small selection of European countries. Supposedly they couldn’t find enough contemporary records from other parts of the world. I don’t believe they even tried finding them or even asked local researchers for help.

Three things I am enjoying right now: doing absolutely nothing, rereading trashy fic and thinking that perhaps I should check my work email but then telling myself I still technically have six more days free of work emails. I’ll have to answer to one or two… but I’ll do that tomorrow.
