    In these 12 inspiring lectures, Professor Fears presents a well-balanced portrait of Churchill that does not whitewash his flaws. Yet he also draws on the most recent historical scholarship and material from Churchill's writings and speeches to make the case that Churchill belongs with Pericles of Athens and Abraham Lincoln as one of the greatest statesmen in the history of democracy.

    Story

    Professor Fears does a wonderful job narrating the life of Churchill. Fears is passionate about Churchill and provides an engaging overview of the man and the context of the times in which he lived. I was already very familiar with Churchill's life and activities during WWII, so I appreciated that Fears spent much time on Churchill's early life and career. He discussed Churchill's relationship with his parents and his fascination with his ancestor, John Churchill, the Duke of Marlborough and used that as a framework to understand Churchill throughout the remainder of the lectures. He also analyzed Churchill's politics--made more interesting by his switching of political parties more than one time--as an expression of concern for the common man and freedom for all.
