    I thought it would be handy to know about China for when the Chinese take over the world and the rest of us must all bow to them I might learn Mandarin, too I figure that way I d stand a better chance of getting a job as an eunuch Also, my brother is over there now teaching kids how to speak English and I figure I might go visit him someday soon, so it would be nice to know a few things about the place From Yao to Mao is a tough one to rate On the one hand, for a beginner just learning abou I thought it would be handy to know about China ...

    I love these types of lecture series It s too bad you can t earn college credit just by listening to them, or I could have another degree by now As usual, this lecture did not disappoint Prof Hammond delivered an excellent overview of 5,000 years of Chinese history, giving enough detail to whet the appetite while also effectively giving us a high level look at the events that made China what it is today Do I feel like I m an expert on China after listening to this lecture series No But do I love these types of lecture series It s too bad you can t earn college credit just by listening to them, or I could have another degree by now As usual, this lecture did not disappoint Prof Hammond delivered an excellent overview of 5,...

    A lot of great information delivered in lackluster fashion Professor Hammond covers the highlights of 4000 years of Chinese history, a whole lot of material to condense and make digestible for those of us with little background in the subject He do...

    A lovely overview the lecturer starts from ground zero and covers a huge span of time by discussing major events peppered with fun historical trivia tidbits Highly recommend.

    Overall, this eighteen hour series roughly 600 novel length pages was worth listening to I had listened to a multi hour dynastic history of China via Laszlo Montgomery s China History Podcast The Xia dynasty to The Qing dynasty part 7 , an amateur production, in the old sense of amateur meaning doing it for fun instead of putting food on the table , an...

    This course did a good job of filling in the broad strokes of Chinese history up through the death of Mao, which was very helpful Although I frequently found myself frustrated that he went into insufficient detail concerns areas that particularly interested me, I do realize that to get through 5000 years of history requires a very zoomed out view and would have been made far too cumbersome by zooming in This course gave me a much better understanding than I had, and will, hopefully,...

    Yet again, a great course that made my annual town library tax worth every penny.Learned a lot but please don t ask me to recite all the dynasties in order My only negative comment would be of Hammond s comments about the communists His point was they helped modernize the country He minimized The Great Leap forward killing unknown millions It was kind of one of the great disasters in human history The Nationalists on Taiwan meanwhile were clearly doing a better job of modernizing their isla Yet again, a great course that made my annual town library t...

    A decent survey but greatly lacking in detail While I can see the difficulty in fitting 5000 years of history into 18 hours of lecture, I would have gladly had one that wasthan twice as long withdetail It provides a very high and basic level of the history but sources like The China H...

    Very informed, but would have likeddetail on the individuals involved For cramming 5000 years of history into twenty some lectures, it is impressive Makes me want to learn the subjectdeeply.
