    This course did a good job of filling in the broad strokes of Chinese history up through the death of Mao, which was very helpful Although I frequently found myself frustrated that he went into insufficient detail concerns areas that particularly interested me, I do realize that to get through 5000 years of history requires a very zoomed out view and would have been made far too cumbersome by zooming in This course gave me a much better understanding than I had, and will, hopefully, serve as a This course did a good job of filling in the broad strokes of Chinese history up through the death of Mao, which was very helpful Although I frequently found myself frustrated that he went into insufficient detail concerns areas that particularly interested me, I do realize that to get through 5000 years of history requires a very zoomed out view and would have been made far too cumbersome by zooming in This course gave me a much better understanding than I had, and will, hopefully, serve as a framework upon which to putspecific understanding.A few of things that stood out to me through the course were the historic strength of China, they had, pre...

    Very informed, but would have likeddetail on the individuals involved For cramming 5000 years of history into twenty some lectures, it is impressive Makes me want to learn the subjectdeeply.
