This course will explore the material factors which contributed to
Europe's rise to (and decline from) world hegemony over the past
millennium or so.  In a global context we shall examine the
processes of agricultural and industrial revolution; and of
demographic and urban expansion.  We shall study these processes as
they developed within Europe, but also outside of it in the form of
exploration and imperial colonization.
