Attention will be devoted to major political, social, economic, and cultural developments, beginning with the many dimensions of the political and industrial revolutions of the 19th century, continuing with the emergence of nation-states and nationalism, working-class movements, the consequences of imperialism and war, and Communism and Fascism, and concluding with study of the Second World War, the reassertion of Europe and the collapse of the Soviet system.
