Finally up to this. I'm seriously curious if a tiny part of my country's history will be mentioned, too :)

Anyone else feeling this is very American-centric? The first section felt to me like it was "and this is what happened before America" and rather rushed, but that could easily be because of the large spread of the course. My biggest niggle so far has been over the splodging of three continents together and an apparent assumption that they were One... I'm enjoying the oriental stuff as it's an area I know very little about. I think that now I'd like to do a course on that solely...

Well, it's global, to show how they're interconnected, but yeah... Too little info for my taste.

I almost feel like they are compensating for World History being so Eurocentric in past years. I personally have felt that Europe so far has been kind of skimped on with so much concentration being on Asia, the Middle East and the Americas.

Yup. Not a huge problem though if one is "already" familiar with the history of the region.
