Skeptic's Guide to American History (audio)

Well done overview of American History with a historiographical twist. Reminded me of Mr. Begin's history classes, but probably a little more sophisticated. I really liked the lecturer's call to skepticism which rang throughout, as he questioned theme after theme of cliche Americanisms. I really liked his spiral model of historical progress, and also the fact that he dropped enough references that I now have plenty of follow up work to do. A worthwhile course for any non-American. Buy it on TTC.
