Pritchett, Frances
[ASCM V2357] Introduction to the Civilization of India

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

This is undoubtedly the worst course I've taken at Columbia during my three semesters here.

It seems as though she had just learned the material herself a few hours before the lecture. My TA was especially waspy. Avoid this class at all costs!
