(HIST 202) This course offers a broad survey of modern European history, from the end of the Thirty Years' War to the aftermath of World War II. Along with the consideration of major events and figures such as the French Revolution and Napoleon, attention will be paid to the experience of ordinary people in times of upheaval and transition. The period will thus be viewed neither in terms of historical inevitability nor as a procession of great men, but rather through the lens of the complex interrelations between demographic change, political revolution, and cultural development. Textbook accounts will be accompanied by the study of exemplary works of art, literature, and cinema. This course was recorded in Fall 2008.

Customer Reviews

Bad grammar

The correct word is HANGED not hung.

Leftist Bias

I listened to the whole thing. Some good information about the era, but clearly tainted by his biases without an attempt at providing alternative perspectives. He spends almost an entire lecture fawning over an anarchist terrorist, and constantly makes quips about how this or that member of the aristocracy was terrible or a bad person. Admits fantasizing about killing a guy who asked a question about what to do about Jews.


A professor who wastes the student’s time & money

What a self-absorbed professor, negligent in delivery of an expensive education.
A major portion of class time lost with his rambling.
Expertise is not excellence in education.
