The Skeptic's Guide to American History-Part I   

Professor Mark Stoler of the University of Vermont has created 24, half-hour lectures via Great Courses DVD. Half of these DVD lectures will be presented in Term 3; the second half will be saved for Term 4. Stoler focuses on those elements of American history that are misunderstood or where myths abound. We will learn about the true origins of religious tolerance; a balanced perspective on causes of the Revolutionary war, and the vital role of foreign assistance; an assessment of George Washington as a general and a statesman; the extent of democracy the framers of the constitution really intended and much more. Discussion will follow each lecture led by the OLLI facilitator.
