Nigel is so thorough, and has such a clear plan to lead us through his topics- -I gain a great understanding of whatever he's talking about because of his solid background in this field. (He's a terrific in-person Context walks docent as well!)
I appreciated Dr. Perrin's obvious deep interest and knowledge in the subject, as well as his desire to link events with antecedents, providing the socio-economic underpinnings that could lead to such an upheaval.
“Liberty or Death” Is an excellent 4-part course. Dr. Perrin provides just the right amount of well-organized information during each class, all paired with compelling images. I appreciated that he paused for questions three or four times a session. If, like me, the French Revolution is new territory that you would like to better understand, this would be an excellent choice. Highly recommended.
Liked the approach - we hit the highlights of the revolutionary events and got a sense of the sweep, and twists it took. Great to overview the events with insights into the 'why' but not bogging down on details. I feel much more oriented to reading further on my own in the future. Skillful instructor - lots of experience teaching.
