Very informative and well researched series. I found Professor Kaplan easy to listen to. His presentation would be better if he picked up the over all tempo of his lecture. He feels the need to repeat himself more then is necessary to make a point. Overall tho, his style is very acceptable.
Professor Kaplan is not an electrifying orator but don't let this stop you from buying this series.
The course itself is not linear but rather is presented in topics rather then timeline format. This is understandable considering the topic.
A word to the would be buyer. This course is about the history of the American political parties and not about the politicians themselves. If you want to learn more about the politicians themselves, this is not for you. ( What is funny is that Huey Long gets more discussion then Andrew Jackson and Teddy Roosevelt combined) If you however want to learn about the history of the political parties that have dotted our history, then I wholly recommend this series.
