I'm not a history person at all but took this class based on previous reviews. It was not an easy class,but was by far the most interesting class I took freshman year. If you go to class and take good notes the exams are very doable. Professor Lieberman is someone you should definitely take a class with, professors like him do not come around often

I really learned a lot in this course. Very interesting. Also quite a challenge if you are a math/science person. But definitely worth it

Great professor, not biased! grade really depends on GSI, but professor Lieberman genuinely cares about each student and will take the time to get to know you by name and discuss the course or even unrelated topics with you. Take advantage of his office hours! He is so intelligent and has so much to offer.

Literally the best professor in Michigan. He loves his students and if you go to office hours he will be happy to discuss whatever topic you want.

Amazing class and Professor. Take 244! Even if you know nothing about the arab-israeli conflict, you will learn so much from the class. His lectures are directly from the book he wrote, so if you go to lecture you don't have to read and vice versa. Midterm and Final and optional paper (don't write it). Great prof- not biased at ALL about conflict.

Professor Lieberman is easily the most esteemed professor at this University. He is remarkably knowledgeable and well-versed in his discipline, and provides a factual and objective recount of the Israeli conflict. I strongly urge all those interested in Israel, or the Middle East, to take his course.

Seriously a great experience. I never knew history could be so interesting. The readings are very helpful but not necessary, I'd do them for the bigger topics and I reviewed with his book before tests. Go to every lecture and take detailed notes, look them over every day the week before the test, and you should be fine. LIEBERMAN IS THE MAN!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, best professor there is. He knows it all and won't take any excuses but still the nicest guy. Hope to see him in grad school. God bless you Mr. Lieberman.

Interesting class but lectures are rapid fire and the class grade is made up of two massive tests

Holy cow was this class the best. It is a MUST before you graduate U of M. Lieberman is a really bright guy, and he can fire off facts about the Arab-Israeli conflict off the top of his head at will. He really challenges you to get involved with the topic and stay engaged, even if you don't have to read the books (read the articles, though).

If you don't go to lecture in this class, you will probably fail. Lieberman is probably one of the most intelligent people I've ever met. He doesn't use powerpoint, so you really have to pay attention when he talks. The lectures weren't that relatable, but he's still a good prof overall.

Great professor. Learned a lot. Reasonable expectations. Straight-forward exam. Attendance not mandatory, but go to class. Seriously. And don't buy the [expensive] books--at least, not if you actually go to class and take notes. But take this class!

He's a very engaging lecturer that is, in my opinion, very good at presenting each side in a fair light, without necessarily making excuses for either. Fantastic at distilling a wide-ranging and messy topic into clear lectures. Expectations for exams are clear.

Vic is one of the best people you'll find at UM and a wonderful professor and scholar as well. Thought his lectures had a pro-Israeli slant, but historical narratives almost always favor the hegemonic group. If you can think critically on your own, you shouldn't worry much about bias. He lectures with authority, eloquence, and crystal clarity.
