Hist 244 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B+

Hated this class. Lieberman reads directly from the textbook he wrote himself for lectures. Grading expectations were not clear. If you like regurgitating information this is the class for you, if you like to think outside the box and want a bigger picture on the Arab-Israeli conflict, look elsewhere. Worst class of college.

HIS244 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.

Hist 244 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

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.

HISTORY 244 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.

HIST 244 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.

MENAS 244 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

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.
