College Of Arts And Sciences | History of Today's Crises
E104 | 0140 | Cohen, W.


The course will emphasize the historic origins of major world crises.
It will include the history of major political ideologies-democracy,
socialism, communism, fascism, and nationalism. Through concrete
examples we will examine how they have functioned. The impact of
European imperialism and the struggle for freedom of subjected
peoples will also be addressed. These developments will be
scrutinized for the impact they have had in creating the major crises
of the contemporary world.
