Comparative Revolutions and the Modern World
0.5 Credit

An examination of the course and consequences of major revolutions from 1789 through to the 20th century and considers the key social, political, economic, ideological, cultural and international dimensions of these important upheavals. Each revolution (e.g., the French, Russian, Chinese, Cuban) will be considered in its own historical context, but the comparative framework will allow students to examine common elements that shaped the wider world.
