Excellent if concise overview of a fascinating period of Global History. Presented in a very engaging manner but with a logicakl structure to tie together what often appeared to be disparate strands.
Dear Professor,\n\nI am fascinated with week one, even though I work in the scientific side, also like history, nothing more rewarding than visiting and ancient place and know what happened... Thanks

Excellent insight, clearly understood broad presentation of ideas. Excellent communicator, this was by far the best course I have taken in Coursera.

Elegantly composed, clearly articulated, brilliant analysis of modern world history from a primarily political aka "diplomatic history" perspective.

I love this course. History is my nemesis, but right now I hold my breath in every lecture and my mind winds up with thousands of questions! Thanks.

Very fresh, comprehensive and compelling course. It was much more interesting to listen to professor Zelikow than learning about this at my school.

Informative, engaging and amusing at times, terrific content!! Crash course to Modern history. I understand colonial and imperial rule better now.

Very nice global perspectives with focus on why and not what! Could be a little less material on America and more global, but still recommendable!

Excellent Professor!!! Not the same old boring history course! Prof. Zelikow really digs into history and poses the fundamental question "Why?"

Offers an in depth look into our modern history and at many of the factors that got us to where we are today. Very compelling and interesting.

I really enjoyed this course - although I wish the big weekly quizzes were available to everyone, not only those who purchased the course.

I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you. The professor is a great public speaker and very knowledgeable. I wish he was teaching another course.

I only wish Coursera would offer history courses on major revolutions that shaped the world as well, i.e Russia, Iran...etc.

Professor is clear and goes at a great pace. I like how he tackles the deeper things in history; ie, the how and why, not just the what.
by Lawrence L•
Very good to have an overall understanding of the turn into modern history. It is good to know not just what happened but why happened.
by Cassandra C•
I absolutely love this professor! He makes the topic and class as a whole extremely engaging! I would take any class he teaches any day!

This course is very informative. It helped me to prepare an outline about the history of modern world from 1760 to 1910. Thank you sir.
Great Course. I always wished to read World History. This gives details of the events and the reason behind them in much-required need.

After doing this course I have a better picture of how the world we live in was formed, and what are the forces driving the human race.

Nice and really interesting content, a pitty that I couldn't do the tests without buying the entire course, but it's enjoyable anyway.
I really enjoyed this course. I learned a lot and enjoyed how the Professor compared events around the world and tied things together.
