A tremendously gifted teacher. Prof Zelikow gave me a new understanding of modern history. I would happily spend another 15 weeks delving deeper in the subject with him.

It's an amazing experience that takes you though a compelling, interesting journey over more than 250 years of History. I don't understand how anyone can be consider him/herself an informed citizen without having these notions - and I realize how much I've been missing in my knowledge and interpretations of current and past events. Professor Zelikow is a wonderful teacher, besides an accomplished professional in his area, and it's delightful to learn from him. His narrative is consistent, coherent, well supported, but it has elements of originality that will surely interest even those who previously completed studies in global History. His style is great - in fact, I knew I'd be sticking around since the first "welcome, make yourselves comfortable". If you're investing in MOOCs, this is an absolute essential. I couldn't recommend it more.
