A wonderful course in history - a relaxing atmosphere, much interesting information, effective ways of presenting new facts and ideas. The instructor is one of the best I have ever seen in online courses.

Course Description

Instructors:  Philip Zelikow
School:  University of Virginia
This is a survey of modern history from a global perspective. Part One begins with the political and economic revolutions of the late 1700s and tracks the transformation of the world during the 1800s. Part One concludes as these bewildering changes seem to be running beyond the capacity of older institutions to handle them. Throughout the course we try to grasp what is happening and ask: Why? And the answers often turn on very human choices.
