A critical study of Egyptian history, not a mere chronology of events. Incorporates information coming from the latest archeological finds and provides critical and provocative interpretations. Amongst one of the better presentations form Modern Scholar.
Some knowledge of Egyptian history would be useful to get the most out of this book.
This one is going to need all your attention. Download and print the course material, take notes and rewind as often as you need to. the effort will be well rewarded. Plan to spend at least 30-40 hours on this course. It is not one that you can listen to in your car.
This is unexpected in what is supposed to be a scholarly discussion or rather education. It turns out to be more of a sermon or a rant or at best propaganda that would be better suited to appear on Fox. It makes Tom Friedman appear fair and balanced. Modern scholar owes it to its listeners to do justice to this topic by making available a more well rounded analysis of China.
Not one of the narrators better reads-should not have dramatized. Good content and still worth listening to.
Looking forward to more Russian Classics read by Charlton Griffin.
A good introduction to History of the Greek Civilization. And no one can bring it to life better than Charlton Griffin.
