Forty years ago, on Nov. 18, 1978, 914 members of a ‘utopian’ society deep in the Guyana jungle, known as Jonestown, drank a lethal elixir of Flavor-Aid and cyanide. Tim Carter was in the inner circle of its charismatic leader, Jim Jones. He escaped into the jungle. This is his story.

Don’t listen to the other reviewer. This is a damn good series on Jonestown. Not super in depth but great as an intro or as another source.

Also for audible members it’s free, so ignore the comment about wasting your credit in other review.

The history of the Romans as they advanced the frontiers of Classical civilization is often told as a story of warfare and conquest-the mighty legions encountering the "barbarians." But this only tells one side of the story.Who were the Celts, Goths, Huns, and Persians met by the Romans as they marched north and east? What were the political, military, and social institutions that made Rome so stable, allowing its power to be wielded against these different cultures for nearly three centuries?

This is the third Great Courses that I’ve listened to in which Professor Harl is the narrator and I can’t recommend it enough as well as his series on Vikings and the Crusades as well.

I very much enjoy the style, how he outlines what he’ll go over, and the way he tackles each subject. Very well done and informative.
