Arrogant **** and it's not like he's brilliant or anything.

This guy is not interested in teaching; he is interested in power plays with students, and since he's the teacher and you're the student, guess which position you're in. Interesting readings, but you could have gotten that from the reading list instead of attending class, which is a sick …more perversion of the Socratic method. less

Do the reading and talk in class. Also, go to office hours! Many students complain about him but never actually ask him for help.

If you take his class, do the reading or he will make you cry in front of the class. I've seen it done. If you do the reading and talk in class and don't take his arrogance to seriously, you should get by. And he doesn't use the internet. At all.

Great Professor. Seriously, take his class and judge for yourself. You might get yelled at once in a while, but just sit back and think about how he's probably an middle-aged miserable man, and that he doesn't really mean it. You'll learn more in his class than in four years here.

Arrogant PUNK. Basically it is a course is reading his mind. Not much of an historian or an economist if you ask me. Do not take this class!

Just an awful human being! He's an amazing writer and really knows his stuff, it's a shame however that the material is largely irrelevant in his class, only his sadistic and useless socratic method matters. Pop quizzes galore, even if you do the reading be sure to memorize every word. Also he's a …more nazi with electronics. Avoid him like the plague. less

He is the most bitter, self-absorbed professor I have had - and thats saying something coming from a physics and econ background at UC. IF he would just get over whatever has carved a huge chip in his shoulder and focus on teaching he would be one of the best professors I've had. But he is pretty …more terrible. Read before class or cry in class. less

I completely agree that this guy is not interested in teaching; he is interested in power plays with students. His uses his own articles like Bible and seems to get joy out of humiliating students.
