(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.

Made a history lover out of me and that's no easy task. Thank you Professor Merriman! Honored to be "attend" lectures all the way from Indiana!!

Yale needs to give their profs a public speaking lesson

“Um, um, umm ah ah, (insert point)”
“The, the, the, um, ah, (insert point)”
“And, and, and, um, Um-ah, the, (insert important date)”

This series is exhausting to listen to solely based on presentation.


Just horrible. Maximilien Robespierre was the entire reason for the revolution all because the king and queen humiliated him as a child by not listening to his stupid poem. Horrible revisionist history. Forget this nonsense.
