If you like Mantegna, watch this lecture from New York's Metropolitan Museum -- The Genius of Andrea Mantegna. If you are interested in Pierro, watch The Great Artists; Piero della Francesca, also consider looking at The Pierro Project, which examines his fresco series, The Legend of the True Cross.

Topic #4 Questions.
Topic #5 and 6 Plan. -- note, to ensure we have enough classes to complete course content, we will run units 5 and 6 into one -- "The Cold War" and we will not waste a block for a unit test as this material will form a significant part of the final exam that we write at the end of the course in any case. These questions will also be submitted in two parts. Questions #1-62 will come in at the end of the first week in January (marked out of 35) and the remainder are due on the last day of classes (marked out of 15).
Topic #5 and 6 questions
- Monday, December 3 - Complete the Soviet Union & Eastern Europe to 1956 (base notes). We will fill in the last part of the course with a video -- probably John Green's if there is only a short time. If we have long enough, I will show The Cold War; After Stalin; 1953-1956. An interesting overview of the whole of the Cold War, showing the Soviet perspective well, is Britain's Channel 4 programme:The Cold War Game; The US. Look at John Green's Crash Course video: USA and USSR Fight; The Cold War.
- Tuesday, December 4 - Video - India; The Brightest Jewel - from the 20th Century History series (Part 1, part 2). Decolonization India (base notes). If you have an hour and a half, be sure to watch Partition; The Day India Burned. Another very good docu-documentary series on the partition of India is The Last Days of the Raj (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9).
- Wednesday, December 5 - Unit Test; Topic #4.
- Thursday, December 6 - The Middle East to 1956 (base notes). Video clip from the 20th Century History series - if available. Watch the BBC documentary The Birth of Israel. For those really interested in the Middle East - try The 50 Years War; Israel and the Arabs (chunked into 29 parts, I just link to the Youtube directory for its parts). There is a nice BBC documentary on the 1956 war - The Other Side Of Suez 1956 (part 1, part 2, part 3).
- Friday, November 7 - Complete the Middle East to 1956. If time, begin video Mr. Kennedy & Mr. Khrushchev (sorry, not available online). If time, Begin the Cuban Missile Crisis (base notes). Be sure to watch CNN's Cold War; Episode 10; Cuba 1959-1962. Thirteen Days is a decent Hollywood treatment of the crisis, though it is a little loose in dealing with people and events -- not enough to worry about messing up your knowledge for the final exam though.
