Makes ITunes U worth it!

Only on the 3rd lecture, but am enjoying the arc of history in Europe, 19th to the 20th centuries. A masterful chess game on so many levels. Such courses are not entertainment, but more insightful in connecting the dots of historical events, giving full credit to the stakes involved in the various states, actors competing for power, and indeed preying on states where there is the absence of power.... much to consider and so helpful in putting today's events in appropriate perspective! Thank you!

Great Course

Dr. Sheehan delivers a brilliant, sober, and articulate picture of the development of the modern world. Very much enjoyed this course, highly recommend it for those looking for a broad landscape of how current world order evolved.

This is a great course.

Gives a great deal of insight into 20 century.
