A most interesting series of lectures and a real treat for all

Dear friends,

Having had a few questions about the topic of imperialism, I have decided to re-post here a fantastic series of lectures by Prof. John Marciano entitled "Empire as a way of life".  IT focuses on a crucial aspect of imperialism: its cultural and civilizational dimensions.  These are crucial for a full understanding of imperialism.

Please check out my first post in 2010 about this here: http://vineyardsaker.blogspot.com/2010/04/seminal-series-of-lectures-on-us-empire.html

Please see this original post for the details about these lectures.

I have re-uploaded them all to Mediafire.  Here is the new link to the folder with both the recording and the class notes:


Here is the link to the lectures themselves: (all in one large file)


And here is the link directly to the class notes:


Friends, this is really very good and very important stuff.  It is also a very pleasant series of lectures to listen to as Marciano is a very good lecturer.  I highly recommend that you download and listen to these great series.
