    The Easter Rising of 1916 was a major turning point in Irish history. Peopled by patriots and poets, fueled by a desperate desire for freedom, and played out in the historic streets of Dublin against the background of World War I, the rebellion is a story of tremendous power and unique poignancy.

    connie says: "more than the year 1916"
    "Great story, makes me feel like I was there."

    The story was a great way to educate about a factual event, using a fictional character. Very entertaining and informative at the same time.

    Acclaimed national security columnist and noted cultural critic Fred Kaplan looks past the 1960s to the year that really changed AmericaWhile conventional accounts focus on the 60s as the era of pivotal change that swept the nation, Fred Kaplan argues that it was 1959 that ushered in the wave of tremendous cultural, political, and scientific shifts that would play out in the decades that followed.

    James says: "Facinating look at a neglected moment in history"
    "Boring topics selected, with monotone narration."

    If you're into Jazz, it might be okay. I was expecting more on general history, but it's very heavy on the arts... Jazz, literature, painting, etc... kind of weak on everything else. I probably stopped listening about 2/3 of the way through it and never went back to it.
