This was my third Great Courses lecture – the final one on my e-shelves. I bought all 3 on sale and was quite happy with the first two after I got used to the reading style of a lecture rather than that of a book – they’re different. It’s taken me awhile to get through it but today, after Justice Redeemed it seemed like a good time.
Actually, I was bored for the first few chapters probably because I majored in US/European history a very long time ago and have kept reading it as a layman for over 40 years. So although the work is entitled “The Skeptic’s Guide” it’s *basically* the same info I’ve come across over the years. I suppose that would have been okay but Stoler gives the lecture as though what he’s saying should be an incredible surprise to his listeners – well maybe it is for folks who read American history for a mandated class 20 years ago and haven’t touched it since. >>>>MORE (no spoilers) >>>>
