The purpose of this course is to acquaint the student with the
historical background of some of the burning issues of the day.  To
understand crises in the Balkans, the Middle East, Rwanda, and other
world hot spots, it is essential to consider the politics of
nationalism, revolution, and globalization.  This course will also
examine how the historian living in today's world looks at the past,
seeking in it an insight into the forces and issues which have led to
our current predicament.  This course will have a midterm, a final,
and two research papers.
