Great course, Monod does a wonderful job surveying contemporary British History. He is a bit of a tough grader, but if you attend all the lectures and do the readings you should be fine. Also be warned that in the beginning of the course he will say that the lectures are optional, but he very much keeps track of who attends the lectures.
Professor Monod is very knowledgeable and passionate about British history. His exams are fine if you pay attention to the lectures. He makes the discussion sections fun by bringing objects he collected. Great course
Unfortunately, this was Professor Monod's last semester before retiring - I would have loved to take more classes with him if I had the chance. He was very detailed in lectures and we had 2 papers throughout the semester and a final exam at the end. Lots of reading was due at the end of each week and I often couldn't get to it all.
