Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Brazinksy's gift as a teacher is how he turns history on its head and exposes you to new perspectives in only hour long lectures. You'll learn not only what the books tell you, but the ability to challenge and question what has been written.
I learned so much about the U.S. and its goals abroad. Going back to its inception, Brazinsky shows you the historical threads that weave together the U.S. and its ideology. You also get to hear Brazinsky do impressions of popular presidents, which is a must-see.

Advice for students:
Don't buy the textbook, but do the other readings! He has a quotes section on his examines which drawn from the readings from class. They form the basis of all discussions, and are essential. Make sure to take notes on the readings. Also, if you speak enough in the big lecture you can get a ton of extra credit.
