Professor Stoler, an expert in U.S. diplomatic and military history and the Cold War, delivers 24 entertaining and insightful lectures on the rise of the United States to the position of the world's only superpower. Stoler presents the material in a coherent chronology as he explains how the United States evolved from a sparsely settled handful of colonies whose survival was in grave doubt into the most powerful nation the world has ever known—militarily, economically, technologically, culturally, politically, and even ideologically. The author expresses a few political opinions in the last few lectures, but he maintains objectivity throughout the majority of the course. He presents this fascinating listen with enthusiasm and expertise. B.C.E. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2010]
