All the history you've forgotten from high school, and more, is presented wonderfully in this series of lectures. A great introductory or refresher course, and good for piecing it all together. Geoffrey Hosking is easy to listen to—never stuffy or overbearing. At some points I would wish for more detail, but this book really does cover a large span of time. Very worthwhile.
Any additional comments?
Professor Hosking deserves a big kiss on both cheeks for having made my recent training runs at least mentally enjoyable! 16 hours (for both parts) of European history, told in the most melodic British English - highly recommendable! Especially for someone like me, with gaping holes in history knowledge due to uninspired teachers and Soviet-centred curriculum...

Another winner from Modern Scholar. Easy and enjoyable to listen to. A decent introduction to the subject. .
