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.
