History students will inevitably study Americas, and in doing so need to obtain Americas textbooks. But students of Americas often spend far too much money every semester purchasing Americas textbooks. Americas books can be very expensive when you buy new textbooks, while a rented textbook can be half the price or less. For example, a rental copy of either The Guns of August, The Black Death: Natural and Human Disaster in Medieval Europe, or The Transformation of War: The Most Radical Reinterpretation of Armed Conflict Since Clausewitz can be 75% less than what you might pay in a college bookstore.

Textbook rentals are easy (and even cheaper than buying used textbooks! And there are a number of ways to find the rentals themselves. If you wanted to rent The Zinacantecos of Mexico: A Modern Mayan Way of Life, the best way would be to find the ISBN number (in this case, ISBN9780026203111) from your Americas class guide and search for it on Whether you’re studying Canada, Caribbean & West Indies, or any other subject within Americas, renting textbooks is the way to go.
