Russia has invaded a sovereign neighboring state and threatens a democratic government elected by its people. Such an action is unacceptable in the 21st century.

In explaining different cultures in the book, Boyer disregards political correctness. Describing how people of South America blended their culture with the Catholicism brought over from Europe, he refers to it as "freaky-freaky crap that doesn't look like Catholicism."

And the war crime known as the "Rape of Nanking," in which Japanese soldiers killed thousands of Chinese people in 1937 and 1938, "really sucked for China."

As a professor, I have always tried to make my course materials relevant to today's world, and I much prefer plain English explanations to academic jargon.  But I never intentionally dumbed down the materials - I think this professor has gone too far in that direction.  He may be very popular with his students, but he isn't fostering the language skills that will benefit them once they go on the job market.
