We will take a broad look at the many sources of change and the varieties of their expression in the modern period. Topics will include the resulting cultural turbulence and reconstruction, reform and revolution, colonialism and liberation, the changing roles of women, the economic transformation of recent decades, and the interplay of authoritarianism and democracy.

This course, with lectures, slides, cinema, and class discussion, addresses these matters topically. You may expect to read and view a number of original sources (biographies, travel accounts, monumental art, and doodles) in order to study the rise and rivalry of Christianity and Islam; changing notions of the hero from swordsman to scientist; comparative treatments of minorities (Jews) and majorities (women); the relationship between church and state; the management of loyalty and love; shipping, printing, and technological superiority; why Columbus reached Japan and Galileo discovered Neptune; the relation between art and autobiography; and other topics that illustrate European history. There will be one hour examination in addition to the final.

Prerequisites & Distribution: (3). (Excl). May not be repeated for credit.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

HISTORY 389 surveys the evolution of warfare in the Western world from the seventeenth century to the present. Points of emphasis will include the relationship between politics and war and between societies and their military institutions, the influence of changes in political, social, economic, and technological factors upon Western methods of warfare, and the impact of the popularization and nationalization of war upon Western nations' approach to modern conflicts. Particular attention will be paid to the relationship of the United States military to its nation's society and whether or not there is a distinctive "American Way of War". The conduct of specific wars, campaigns, and battles will be addressed, but they will be employed to illustrate the above themes and will not, in and of themselves, be the focus of the course.

Course requirements will include one research paper, a one-hour midterm examination, and a two-hour final examination.
