place in the first half of the century and which affected people
world-wide. Topics: the expansion and contraction of the great powers; war
and peace; nationalism; imperialism; industrialization; socialism;
feminism; and fascism. Selected readings from descriptive and analytical
studies, biographies, and novels. Three exams and short assignments.
