Best AP World History Textbook

ExperimentalExperimental Posts: 44Registered User Junior Member
What's the best AP World History Textbook (not exam prep book) you have used (eg. The American Pageant: 13th Edition/AP Edition for AP US History). This should help those looking to self study APWH, suggest new books to their school, or maybe even use book x in conjunction with their own textbook from school.
