Professional reviews

"Professor Roth brings his considerable experience as a lecturer in history and warfare in this enjoyable lecture set. Roth's comfort with the subject matter will keep listeners engaged throughout this fascinating, and frequently surprising, look at mankind's endless preoccupation with war, its methods, and its far-rippling effects. The topics of these talks range broadly, from stone arrowheads to nuclear weapons and terrorism, and they consider the meaning and impact of war from many angles: cultural, religious, economic, industrial, political, and more. Roth's speaking style is brisk and natural, with no professorial mannerisms to distract from the well-ordered presentation. The recording is cleanly produced and edited, with good volume overall and no unwelcome surprises. M.G. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
