This course is an introduction to the history of the world since 1900. Students will learn about the historical processes that led to the emergence of an interdependent world in the 21st century. Topics will include: the establishment of Europe's world hegemony in the years leading up to World War I, the internal conflicts which beset European civilization in the years between the wars, in particular, the rise of Communism and Fascism and the world economic crisis of the 1930's which pushed Europe and Asia toward World War II. Students will also examine the character of the world order that emerged after 1945, the origins of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union, and the problems of some of the nations newly emerging from colonial domination.
