Default Syllabus of History


I opted for history in PMS.While selecting this subject I did not think even for a second as this is my subject and I was so confident that I did not go through the syllabus.when I read the syllabus I was amazed that the person who made syllabus of History paper-1 was such a bussy man that he just opened a single book and copied all its contents and got his job finished.this is ridiculous .The syllabus for History paper-1 is a combination of anthropology,political science and cultural history and all its contents are taken from C. A. Bayly’s book “The Birth of the MODERN WORLD 1780-1914”I do not think this kind of “history” is being taught in any department or university in Pakistan.I just want to salute the person who did this “Great Job”

Have a look at the syllabus and then at the contents of C. A. Bayly’s book “The Birth of the MODERN WORLD 1780-1914”
