    The professor spends most of every lecture reading from primary sources. While this is excellent historianship, for myself, I didn't find it an enjoyable listening experience. I found it hard to focus and follow 18th century legal jargon. It didn't help that the lecturer has a peculiar speaking quirk in which his speaking speed gradually sped up until it was almost unintelligible at some points. To be completely fair, because the professor uses primary sources extensively, this is a very historically accurate and well researched course. Anyone who doesn't mind listening to 18th century primary sources should enjoy this.
