Summer Reading

I will be a fall transfer student majoring in history and I was wondering if there was a summer reading list or other books that might be recommended. I know on the history web page that the following is given.

Beginning-Intermediate Reading
E.H. Carr, What is History?
Marc Bloch, The Historian's Craft
R.G. Collingwood, The Idea of History

Advanced Reading
Keith Jenkins, Re-Thinking History
Robert Berkhofer, Beyond the Great Story
Paul Veyne, Writing History

Much Appreciated

I'm not a transfer student, but I am a History major, and I've never had a summer reading list recommended. However, what is your area of interest? Perhaps I can make some personal recommendations, based on the classes you're hoping to take?
Cool! I am as well, and I just finished last quarter.

Do you have any specific time periods you're looking into? I've taken multiple medieval classes as well as modern classes (mostly focusing either in the victorian era or ww1-ww2)
not as of this moment
Please see ucsc_incoming and ucsc_chatter for more assistance.
