Okay lecture - interesting material, narrator stumbles a bit

Not too much detail. Interesting time in history. Moves pretty fast through some potentially good material.

Clear voice, moderate speed and easy vocabulary

Fast moving and interesting lecture

This excerpt from a longer Great Course is fascinating and well worth listening to. Great professor and very interesting topic.
