Meets with WEUR W405

B362 will cover the major social, political, economic, and
military-diplomatic developments in Europe from ca. 1930 to the present. A
major focus of the course will be World War II, its origins, immediate
effects, and consequences. Some of the specific topics that will be dealt
with are: the Great Depression of the 1930's and its social and political
consequences, international communism, fascism, the emergence of the
Soviet and National Socialist totalitarian regimes in Russia and German,
World War II and the Holocaust, postwar European recovery and the
development of the common market, European politics from the 1960's to
1990, and the Cold War and its end in Europe. There will be two mid-term
examinations and a final.
