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://thesaker.is/a-seminal-series-of-lectures-on-the-us-empire/
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.
