I really enjoyed listening to this lecture series. I have learnt many new things. It has great breath but I wish it had slightly more depth. I felt many of the lectures ended suddenly without exploring the topic further with more depth with more stories and examples.
Very interesting for a newbie to this important and interesting history of the region. I found the narrator a bit annoying, especially, about 100 times throughout the course his asking a question and then saying "you got it" like a half second after the question. About half way through I found myself shouting back at him #you got it" before he even said it, which most of the time he did. I'm surprised no one caught that, or that he wasn't annoyed at himself.

Professor Bellenoit castigates the British, mostly without citing any evidence. I am surprised this passes for scholarship.
