I listened to the audio version. It was a fantastic listen. This course does overlap with the outstanding course from The Great Courses series Foundations of Western Civilization II by Professor Bucholz, but I couldn't begin to say which course is better. This one focused more on political and philosophical evolution: nationalism, conservatism, imperialism, capitalism, liberalism, communism, socialism, fascism, etc. But it's not a philosophy class. Professor Childers paints vivid pictures of the leaders of the day and of the circumstances that propelled Europe through the last 200 yrs.
