Amazing Lecture

I learned a lot about the Ancient world I never learned, not even on the college level. It's so breathtakingly broad it's hard to keep up with. But it's worth it. It's a perspective that is incredibly instructive. Raia is a fun and personable professor.

Brilliant lecture

This is the most fascinating history lesson presented by a very very smart teacher. You will need to keep a dictionary close at hand.

Typical Example of what is wrong in the academic social sciences

Poorly organized course filled with lots of nonsense.
