***no spoilers*** I thought this was an excellent lecture series. Very engaging. I am really loving all the newer lectures on GCP. In this one there was a ton of brilliant information about the period. I really appreciated how the lectures were often presented with more than one POV on a topic, which encouraged the viewer to decide which of the (often several) scholarly positions they think is the most factual. I did feel I was lead to one POV over another however. Too many historians simply feel that their expertise in a subject gives them the dignitas to mold the student to only their viewpoint. Here we are given different POV but then we a steered to choosing the one the lecturer has a scholarly bias for. History can not be that simplistic. That is why I and many others find History so fascinating! The lecturer seems a bit nervous working with the teleprompter. I can certainly give him a break on this because transferring from a classroom to a video production is not easy to do. I am glad to see he has other lectures on GCP and look forward to viewing them as well.
