What people are saying

We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

200 years ago in one review

I also noticed that it was largely revisionist, meaning it applied today's standards of morality with actions taken 200 years ago.

actions taken 200 in one review

makes you think in one review

Really good course that open up new perspectives and makes you think about the controversies.

never thought-about aspects in one review

But it was still interesting, and, for an American, brought out many never thought-about aspects of Empire.

rather those interested in one review

I would not recommend the course to anyone trying to look at historic events, but rather those interested in pot shooting the British government.

also found some in one review

I also found some of the postings to be criticize everything at all times.
