Charles River Editors Round Up

Suleiman the Magnificent: The Life and Legacy of the Ottoman Empire’s Most Famous Sultan - Charles River Editors Guangzhou: The History and Legacy of China’s Most Influential Trade Center - Charles River Editors

Picked these up when they were offered for free, last year occurring to Amazon.  


The Suleiman one is the better of the two.  I did want more information about his wives, but it is a good introduction.   3 stars.


Guangzhou is more European centric than I liked.  I understand that it was a trade center, but I learned more about how it effected the Europeans than the Chinese.  Strange considering where the city is located.
