The best

Believe it or not, History could be fascinating. She proved it. Once get started, You could never stop listening for 39 hours.

She makes history riveting.

Thank you, Professor Burns for recording these engaging lectures that are helping me finally get a grasp of American history and to really see how the past is not dead. Burns not only gives a good overview of the important events and people in the U.S. from the Civil War to the present, she actually helped me see the root of many of our modern day political clashes and why the country is still so divided on what the roles of both government and business should be.

I'm an avid reader, but I'd rather have a tooth pulled than sift thorugh a history textbook. She makes learning about history both fun and easy. The lectures are entertaining and thought provoking, and they have given me a good foundation of U.S. history and a newfound interest in the subject--so much so that I'd like to read more about it.

Phenomenal Lecture Series

I started this lecture series immediately after listening to Dr. Blight's well-known and (rightfully) highly-regarded "Civil War & Reconstruction" course;
Dr. Burns course is the perfect subsequent installment for a complete survey of US history from 1850-or-so (Blight) to present (Burns). She seemed to highlight everything I wanted to know and never lingered on less-enticing topics. She's an excellent orator in regards to both content and delivery. Dr. Burns course was a pleasure to listen to - so glad I found this lecture series.
