Daniel Sargent is an outstanding lecturer, highly engaging, and extremely well informed. A pleasure to listen to.
This was a fantastic course on the intricacies and challenges of US foreign policy and the establishment of globalized relationships. Well worth listening to!
Great content but DICEY AUDIO
Good and engaging lecture series. Lecturer scaffolds historical events lecture-by-lecture fairly well. Lecturer himself is obviously knowledgable but sometimes tries to pack too much into a lecture, resulting in omitted/rushed items. Questions from students CANNOT BE HEARD (but only 1-2 per lecture on average, consisting of a couple minutes max of lecture time). Lectures run a little long (around 70-80 minutes).
The audio started off perfect in early lectures but quickly turns very degraded (low volume, constant scratchy sounds) by 1/3 through the series and does not get better. While walking and listening often had to turn iPhone earbuds to max and hope no trucks drove in order to hear it. If sensitive to audio quality, STAY AWAY.
If interested in a complementary iTunes U course on international policy from a more global standpoint, I highly recommend James Sheehan's History of the International System.
