HIST 4296 After the End of History (Spring: 3 )
The end of the Cold War was both an end to a lengthy and bitter conflict but also the beginning of a new world. How would this new world be organized, who if anyone would dominate it, what issues, problems and conflicts would beset it? Would the institutions and values embodied in the post-Cold War framework prove applicable to the more global world in which they would have to operate? The course will begin by looking closely at the post-Cold War order and then examine its functioning in the contemporary world.
