Free download ´ The Ottoman Empire 100 18 hours 44 minsBy understanding the dramatic story of the Ottoman Empire from its early years as a collection of raiders and conuerors to its undeniable power in the 15th and 16th centuries to its catastrophic collapse in the wreckage of the First World War one can better grasp the current complexities of the Middle East Over the course of these 36 enlightening lectures investigate over 600 years of history that covers the nature of Ottoman identi. The course was perfect for what I needed I knew plenty about the Middle East post 1914 and a decent amount prior to 1258 or so but I wanted to get an overview of what happened in the interim Obviously this course covers far than that with a specific focus on Asia Minor since it s the center of the Empire and Harl s specific area of studyProfessor Kenneth Harl is my favorite lecturer with The Great Courses and I ve enjoyed each of his other courses He s always very passionate and his wit is always appreciated Harl s breadth of knowledge is very impressive he s a Classicist by training and this course should really be outside of his area of expertise He generally does a solid job of it but the course is missing some of the original commentary in his other courses This was an excellent overview of a really important topic that hasn t been discussed nearly enough The focus of the course is certainly on political and military events though there are a number of lectures in the middle devoted to the arts letters and social history of the High Ottoman Empire Some of the earlier lectures were a bit dry but necessary to provide the background for how the Ottoman Empire came to exist This course completely changed my perspective on the Ottoman Empire and especially its so called decline I especially liked the lectures on the Late Empire with the attempt and failure to adjust to the modern world and Harl s explanation of why this was the case The lecture on the Armenian Genocide was uite illuminating45 stars
