The Foundations of Western Civilization. By: Thomas F. Noble, The Great Courses. Between 1348 and 1715, western Europe was fraught with turmoil, beset by the Black Plague, numerous and bitter religious wars, and frequent political revolutions and upheavals. Narrated by: Thomas F. Noble. Yet the Europe that emerged from this was vastly different from the Europe that entered it. By the start of the 18th century, Europe had been revitalized and reborn in a radical break with the past that would have untold ramifications for human civilization.

Prof. Bucholz is very engaging as a speaker. You feel his love for the subject matter. I recommend his course "London: The Greatest City in the Western World" if you anticipate visiting London.

It's excellent. Full of information. Sometimes you have to listen to a lecture several times to absorb it all. It's fascinating.

Thorough for a survey course in Western Civilization 2; it's a great refresher course for the teacher, too.

Superb. The course sweeps through 500 years and a whole continent, and Professor Bucholz will have you cheering and booing protagonists from the wings, with even the odd tear (the poor little ones of the Industrial revolution). This is serious stuff but so entertainingly delivered. As opposed to writing a string of superlatives, I just recommend you buy it. Oh and not to forget the quotes.

We have watched many Teaching Company courses and this is one of the top professors ever. His command of the facts is awe inspiring and he makes history interesting with many stories and a great sense of humor. I can't say enough good things about this man .

Let me start by saying that I really appreciate Prof. Bucholz presentation style and knowledge, which are really put to the test in a long, complex course like this one. He manages to keep you interest alive in this long ride along the centuries without ever coming out as pedantic or monotonous.. which is quite a feat for a history professor :) His pragmatic, "typical american", no nonsense approach to the subject is always interesting and pleasant, and a great consolation for those of us who had the misfortune of suffering only boring and insignificant lecturers in our history hours at school. Your knowledge , culture and "peripheral vision" will come out of this course very well enhanced,both on the historical fact and on what can be learned from them..
So why only 3 star in my review? Well.. I have been forced to realize that prof. Bucholz as a (unfortunately classic....) good and loyal american citizen grows exponentially biased as his historical ride through the centuries nears contemporary times..The first symptoms appear in his discussion of world war I, when he blissfully ignores the consequences and responsibilities of the US financial speculations on the war, and from then on it just goes downhill.. When treating the end of world war II prof Bucholz has the stomach of calling the crime against humanity of using the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki "a controversial moral choice".... Controversial????? CONTROVERSIAL???? And to add insult to injury he manages to say:
"I am not a sufficient expert to sove the controversy for you..
it would take a theologian or a philosopher to weight the balance here"
No, prof. Bucholz, it would not take a theologian or philosopher, an historian would actually do fine, but a professor who is more committed to professing the truth than afraid of jeopardizing his privileges , rich salary and consideration from the establishment...
Needless to say, no more than a couple of words are spent on american imperialistic policy, the horros,abuse and exploitment brought by unregulated capitalism ad finally the "preemptive strike" on Iraq. Before the course is over he manages to dedicate just less than a minute to the phenomenon of islamic terrorism, attributing it to the "mainstream fable" of a vague contempt for decadent moral habits and "reasons which are well beyond the scope of this lecture". Again, no, the are not..they are actually at the heart of the scope of that lecture and of a course on western civilization...
Beyond the scope of what I dare say would have been more honest, prof. Bucholz...
