This is a basic survey course in European history from the
Renaissance through Napoleon.  The lectures focus on two areas of
great historical change:  1) cultural and intellectual (Renaissance,
Reformation, Scientific Revolution, and Enlightenment); and 2) socio-
political (Renaissance urban economies, rise of the nation-state,
beginnings of capitalism, Enlightened despotism, and causes of the
French Revolution).  The course will emphasize the reading and
analysis of primary sources.
