Every American Should Listen to This
As the presidential election gathered steam this fall, I was listening to this course by Dr. Kaplan and felt as if he was channeling expert commentary from the great political thinkers of history. My advice: Turn off the TV talking heads and listen to this course. It will connect many of the bits of information you already have about politics -- then sharpen everything into a clear picture.

Quite enjoyable and informative.
If you could sum up The Modern Scholar in three words, what would they be?
I love Thucydides
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Modern Scholar?
The narrator, professor Kaplan, begins his analysis of political science with the ancient Greeks and leads up to modern Game theory. It between, you take a trip through many of the great authors that deal with the subject of political science such as: Machiavelli, Rousseau, John Locke, et cetera. This is one of my favorite audio books, and I plan to listen to it many more times.
