An Age of Empires and Nations: 1865-1922 *NEW*

Telegraphic cables and colonial empires brought the planet together as never before. Electricity, aeroplanes, moving pictures: truly a world of wonders. It was the last age of heroic explorers such as Amundsen and lawmen such as Bat Masterson. But it was also an era of brutal exploitation, “scientific” racism, and national rivalries that exploded in the First World War. This class covers the broad panorama of world history in this era, and explains how it shaped our own lives. Bibliography and handouts included. Instructor: Brian Bixby
