    The extraordinary drama surrounding birth of the Western World.


    Have you listened to any of Professor John R. Hale’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Brilliant, enthusiastic lecture.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Professor Hale has a gift for beginning and ending on a high point.


    Any additional comments?

    If only I had history professors like Hale when I was in college…. But at least I can enjoy it now.
