Events That Changed the World

In this Great Courses lecture series, historian R. Rufus Fears winds a tale of pivotal events that altered the course of human history. His premise is that history hinges on great events that are shaped by great individuals and great ideas. Events selected for discussion range from new political or spiritual ideas, to crucial battles, to scientific advances, to influential leaders, to transformative cultural works. By understanding how and why these events occurred we can understand how the world became what it is today. Lectures will be followed by discussion.
