The Skeptics Guide to American History is a collection of fairly short lectures that take the listener from the Revolutionary War to the end of the Cold War For the most part it's a history of politics and conflict and I found myself surprised than once with Mark A Stoler's perspective on the past It is anything but complete but offers an insight into America's history and dispels some of the myths that many Americans believe to be true As a non American I found it particularly insightful and I think it's definitely worth the effort for Americans who have a high school knowledge of American history but it's probably not really of much interest to academics and historians

Reframe your understanding of this great nation's past and actually strengthen your appreciation for what makes American history such a. This series of lectures starts off with the discovery of the North American continent and concludes it's critical analysis around the time of the Vietnam War It is important to note this is not a set of lectures designed to build a foundational history but to augment knowledge from a perspective that is not as biased by patriotism ethnocentrism or by time In doing so these lectures challenge long held beliefs and myths about American history then proceed to explain their creation and persistence When analyzing historical figures a detailed look at the events that defined these persons to modern history is compared to the events that actually defined the person to his contemporaries This not just a series of lectures on history it is also a excellent guide on how to view history skeptically and in doing so holistically The author is an excellent orator and rarely interjects personal beliefs into the narrative although he does do so by proxy with uotes from others Even so not only does he challenge his own interpretation of history but encourages other's to do so This is an excellent and informative effort and highly recommended to those who enjoy history and those who consider themselves patriots

The Skeptic's Guide to American History The Great Courses #8588Fascinating chapter in the larger story of Western civilization The Skeptic's EpubAnd in this bold lecture series you can do just that. A great course indeedProfessor Stoler dissects the many myths that continue to perpetuate in the US From the Pilgrims to the Information Age and everything in between he analyzes different events and the people involved and sheds light on the actual facts in a clear and concise mannerI have to admit a lot of what the Professor went over I did not know I think its best to have at least a basic knowledge of US history to get the most out of this course However even if I wasn't too familiar with the Great Depression for example I learned a good amount about it and have a foothold albeit a slippery one on the subject Stoler does a good job at giving a basic overview on the eventsOverall I enjoyed this course and I plan to further my reading about US history Highly recommended
