Utopia and Terror in the 20th Century (Great Courses, #8313)

PDF EBook by Vejas Gabriel Liulevicius

EBook Description

These 24 (30 minute) lectures (audio only) reviewed the conflicts of the 20th century with an eye toward the causes or attempts to create perfect societies (utopias) and the methods by which they attempted to bring it to fruition (terror). Utopia and Terror in the 20th Century (Great Courses, #8313) PDF EBookThe course reflects on the unbelievable violence and destruction brought on by the ideologies in WWI, WWII, and the Cold War, with emphasis on the dictatorships in Germany, Russia (USSR), Italy, China, Cambodia, the Balkans and Rwanda (remembering that the winners write the history).While these lectures are a great review of some key events in the 20th century, it is incredibly depressing to realize that 40 million soldiers died in the 2 world wars, and a staggering 170 million civilians also perished in the conflict (many for suffering the crime of wearing glasses).
If you want to learn a bit more history or the 20th century from an articulate and entertaining professor, I highly recommend these lectures. Like this book?
