Description

History is made and defined by landmark events – moments that irrevocably changed the course of human civilization. They have given us 

  • spiritual and political ideas; 
  • catastrophic battles and wars; 
  • scientific and technological advances; 
  • world leaders both influential and monstrous; and 
  • cultural works of unparalleled beauty. 

Now a series of 36 captivating lectures explores some of the most important and definitive events in the history of the world – events after which our world would never be the same. 

Taught by a remarkably gifted teacher with more than 25 teaching awards to his credit, these lectures form an intriguing and engaging tour of thousands of years of human history, from the creation of the Code of Hammurabi to the Battle of Lexington to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech and beyond. It’s a chance for you to gain new insights about world history from a truly riveting historian. 

Using his expert knowledge and impressive ability to draw out invaluable lessons from the past, Professor Fears has chosen the events he discusses based on three criteria: how the event in itself fundamentally changed history, how the aftermath of the event changed history, and how the event and its impact still resonate with us today. 

The result is a comprehensive and authoritative selection of subjects, each of which played a crucial role in transforming human civilization. Whether the event is an obvious or not-so-obvious choice, Professor Fears takes great care to tie each to the 21st century, pointing out just how influential these and other moments were in shaping who we are and how we live.
