The Teaching Company's GREAT COURSES offer some of the best university teachers in the world speaking on their chosen fields. Professor Steinberg has complete command of his subject and delivers his material with passion and thoughtfulness. Each thirty-minute talk is centered on a specific individual and his/her role in European society. Steinberg frames the person in history, then settles in for the feast. His friendly voice rises and falls with each detail while describing and analyzing some of the most famous, and infamous, Europeans of their age. He conveys much of what is often missing in historical books: the love of his subject and the sense that it is important and interesting. R.I.G.
