January 10, 49 B.C.: Julius Caesar crosses the Rubicon River into Rome, igniting a civil war that leads to the birth of the worldâ€™s greatest ancient civilization.
October 12, 1492: The Spanish explorer Christopher Columbus, weary after months at sea, finally drops anchor at the island of San Salvador and takes Europeâ€™s first steps into the New World.
September 11, 2001: On a calm Tuesday morning, a series of terrorist attacks on the United States of America ignites a global war on terrorism that continues to this day.
History is made and defined by landmark events such as theseâ€”moments that irrevocably changed the course of human civilization. While many of us are taught that anonymous social, political, and economic forces are the driving factors behind events of the past, acclaimed historian and award-winning Professor J. Rufus Fears believes that itâ€™s individuals, acting alone or together, who alter the course of history. These events have given us
- spiritual and political ideas,
- catastrophic battles and wars,
- scientific and technological advances,
- world leaders both influential and monstrous, and
- cultural works of unparalleled beauty.
Without them, human history as we know it today would be shockingly unfamiliar. In short, because of these events, our world would never be the same again.
Such is the approach of The World Was Never the Same: Events That Changed History, a captivating new course in which Professor Fearsâ€”a master storyteller and one of the most popular instructors on our Great Courses facultyâ€”provides you with 36 of the most important and definitive events in the history of the world. Itâ€™s an intriguing and engaging tour of thousands of years of human history, from the creation of the Code of Hammurabi (1750 B.C.) to the Battle of Lexington (April 19, 1775), to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.â€™s â€œI Have a Dreamâ€ speech (August 28, 1963), and beyond. And itâ€™s a chance for you to learn new insights about world history at the hands of an engaging historian.
An Expertâ€™s Guide to Historyâ€™s Greatest Moments
So what makes a particular historical event so defining?
Guided by his decades of immersion in the study of the past, Professor Fears narrows down the massive span of human history into 36 of its most powerful events. Using his expert knowledge and his impressive ability to draw out invaluable lessons from the past, he has chosen the events for The World Was Never the Same based on these three criteria:
- The event in itself fundamentally changed history.
- The aftermath of the event changed history.
- The event and its impact still resonate with us today.
The result is a comprehensive and authoritative selection of events, each of which played a crucial role in transforming human civilization. Whatâ€™s more: Professor Fears avoids the common pitfall of treating his subject as a mere catalog or laundry list of eventsâ€”instead, he takes great care to make these lectures feel like a grand, epic narrative of human history.
36 Defining Events, 36 Captivating Stories
Right from the first lecture, Professor Fears takes you back to the dawn of civilization; from there, you hopscotch across more than 3,000 years of history around the world, from the ancient city-states of Mesopotamia and Greece to medieval Europe and colonial America to revolutionary Russia and China. In each instance, Professor Fears weaves a captivating story about each event: what led up to it, how it unfolded, and how the world was changed as a result. More important, he uses these 36 events as guides for both understanding the past and learning from it.
