HIST 379. Europe in Crisis: Empire, Extremism, and War, 1890-1945. 3 Hours AE42 / H.

This course examines the sense of crisis that defined European life in the first half of the twentieth century, an era defined by economic spasms, cultural revolts, extreme political ideologies, and two massively destructive world wars. We will examine the period between 1890 and 1945 as a violent, at times apocalyptic, clash between three competing ideologies - communism, fascism, and liberal democracy -demonstrating how extremism both fed upon and created a sense of crisis.
