Professor Robert Bucholz has fun with these 48 lectures on the history of the modern Western world. He lectures with an experienced but lively tone, focusing mainly on the Renaissance and after, but dipping back into the Middle Ages (with glances at older culture) to explain both ongoing and changing cultural traditions. He knows what questions are likely to arise in listeners' minds, and he's eager to answer them. As a lecturer, he has two characteristics that stand out: an ability to provide understandable conceptual frames and a charming tendency to provide key words that stick in one's memory. His delivery is always clear--he often employs dramatic pauses and emphasis to enhance clarity. G.T.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
