An excellent introduction to 20th and 21st Century history

Professor Sheehan has a great style, easy to listen to and extremely informative. An interesting syllabus builds on themes of sovereignty and the challenges to it between the post-War period and today.

Good, well presented, well recorded introduction to 20th Century History

This is a very good introduction to 20th Century History, albeit from a slightly North American centric poisition. The lecturer is obviously very familiar with his material and has a very organized presentation that aids subsequent recall. Finally, this course is very well recorded, with none of the extraneous background noise that spoils a lot of other itunes-u presentations.
