Review The Skeptic's Guide to American History The Great Courses #8588

The Skeptic's Guide to American History The Great Courses #8588 Read × 2 Review × PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ò Mark Stoler To take a skeptical approach to American history is not to dabble in imaginative conspiracy theories; rather it's to reframe Living through an era is much different from reading about the history of it The one learns about particular historical happenings the complicated their causes occurrences and conseuences become Thus there are plenty of misconceptions myths and half truths about American history to examine for accuracy and completeness These twenty four lectures provide a fresh examination of American history to see what really happened as opposed to what many believe happened The lecturer repeatedly observes that when historians interpret the past they often impose the values and understandings of their own day on to the past events This can lead to incorrect conclusions People well read in American history will probably not learn much that is new from these lectures Nevertheless the lectures do provide a concise articulation of how different people can arrive at different understandings of history The following uotation is a good example of this from Lecture 8 titled Did Slavery Really Cause the Civil War The Lecturer has just finished reviewing numerous causes of the Civil War that have been proposed over the years by different historians Then the lecturer wraps it up as followsInterpretations are usually tied in some way to the era in which they were written It s far from accidental that the generation that fought the war would come to view it in the North as a moral struggle over slavery and in the South as a defensible support of state s rights Similarly it is far from accidental that the economic interpretation gained great popularity during the 1930s the years of the great depression Nor is it surprising that interpretations emphasizing fanatics and incompetent politicians should arise as people in the 1930s began to see World War I as an avoidable conflict and who were simultaneously witnessing the rise of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini Nor should we be surprised that all these alternative views to slavery as the cause of the war emerged in the decades of intense racism in the United States Nor should we be surprised by the reemergence of slavery as a moral issue and the uestion of race relations in the era of civil rights and in the years since World War II and the full revelation of Nazi racial atrocities The emphasis of psychological interpretations in this same time period should not surprise us either Nor should the emphasis on ideology that developed in the years of the cold war which was an ideological conflict be a surprise It is important to realize that if one accepts the ideological approach then all the previous interpretations retain their validity For even if there were no conspiracies in reality no truly irreconcilable differences in economies and cultures no basic disagreement over the nature of the Union and no chance of slavery establishing itself in the territories Americans North and South believed otherwise because of their ideology and they acted on the basis of those beliefs Further ideology and perceptions are themselves products of all the general factors previously sited as causes of the war Economics culture politics political theory moral values And the common denominator linking all of these previously sited causes is SLAVERY It was the base of the southern economy southern culture the conspiracy theories north and south the fanaticism politics moral arguments racism conflicting definitions north and south of rights and ensuing ideological conflicts It is therefore the basic cause of the war In other words slavery was the cause but not in the simplistic way that one would usually think of it

The Skeptic's Guide to American History The Great Courses #8588 Read × 2 Review × PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ò Mark Stoler Your understanding of this great nation's past and actually strengthen your appreciation for what makes American history su I have a friend who s a freshman congressman and have told him every member of congress should watch or listen to this course from The Great Courses It s a different kind of survey course in which each lecture takes on some popularly held belief or myth about America s past and examines in with a skeptic s eye Many of the myths discussed are freuently cited by politicians today to support some viewpoint they are pushing While it s hardly realistic to think that congress would be affected by such scholarship at least we as voters can educate ourselves so that we can weed through the BS on our own For me the most thought provoking was lecture 10 on the pre regulatory Laissez Faire economics era that is widely believed to have spurred on the industrial revolution Here the professor disputes the notion that the economic environment was hands off Explaining instead that it was very interventionist on behalf of big business Fascinating in light of the strong anti regulatory movements of the early 21st century Highly recommended series and the Guidebook prepared by the professor that comes with the course includes a HUGE bibliography for further reading
