The class I have been waiting for : not focusing on a geographic part of the world, but showing interactions between all regions of the world. Great !

One of the best courses I've ever taken! Professor Philip Zelikow is very nice and an extremely competent authority who teaches History in a way that makes you want to know more and more about World events of the last centuries. A pleasant course which I highly recommend!
