This is an anthology of lectures pulled from other Great Courses. Apparently, someone decided on a list of revolutionary figures and then went in search of lectures that mention those people.
Unfortunately, the lecturers do not know that they are supposed to be talking about how or why these people were revolutionaries. Also, since the other courses vary in topic from art, history and politics it gives a very uneven feel to the work.
I couldn't finish it and would not recommend it.

I was very disappointed with this. This was snippets of chapters from many courses. Kind of just a middle lecture promising either to tell more of the story in a future lecture or not having a clear beginning. Some of these were boring- if you are looking for life and times of these leaders this will not suffice. Some were even very insignificant contributions. This one was a waste of time and of one credit. I learned very little.

Good overview, introduced me into a few new interesting charachters. It does lean heavily towards scientists, which whilst it makes, I had not anticipated.

Didn't expect anything different being a compilation of lectures but I hadn't listened to over half of them and the others were a good review from previous lectures
Great variety of characters. But some that should barely make it into the list, but for being American.

very good for the most part. there were a number of lectures I didn't enjoy, found uninteresting. other lectures made me want to find out more. the 36 revolutionary people had a number of surprises and a few I had never heard of.
