Starting with the European milieu that preceded global exploration, these lectures examine the feats of the first conquistadors, the influence of religions, the industry of slavery, the subject of race, the interchange of diseases, and the resultant effects upon Europe. Free of the restraints that censored our public education on these matters, Professor Eakin tactfully tells it like it was, giving an enlightening overview of how the culture of the New World evolved. His lecture style specializes in punctuating major ideas with "earthy" anecdotes, which help one remember the ideas. The masterful organization of the subject combined with the spontaneous and charged speaker makes learning pleasant. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
