Abstract:

To witness how European civilization developed is to understand why and how the entire Western world became who and what it is. Such an understanding is essential if you are to have a nuanced grasp of the important events that dominate the daily news. In short, and in almost every way that matters, historical Europe was the laboratory in which the world you now live in was conceived and tested. And you'll be living with the consequences of those experiments for the rest of your life. The Development of European Civilization leads you through the doors of that laboratory and guides you through the development of Europe from the late Middle Ages through the eve of World War II. In these 48 lectures delivered by University of Toronto Professor Kenneth R. Bartlett, you'll finally grasp the amazing results of that European laboratory over more than 600 years of history.
