The Two World Wars and the 21st Century

HST 2210 3 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Quarter
Description Examines the causes and consequences of the two World Wars. Perhaps no two events more shaped the twentieth century and perhaps even the twenty-first century than World Wars I and II. Topics include the growing rivalries among European powers in the early twentieth century; the wars themselves and their social and economic ramifications; the Paris Peace Conference and its impact on Asia, the Middle East, and Europe; interwar issues and the rivalries that arose from the World War I settlements and led to World War II; and the consequences of WWII, including nationalist movements and the cold war, the legacies of which we continue to struggle with today.
