HIST 7540 20th Century Europe: Problems and Perspectives (Summer: 3 )
Europe has never been a peaceful place. Yet even by low standards of that bloody continent, the 20th century had a rather bad start. This makes the second half of the 20th century all the more surprising, as Europe emerged from two world wars into a difficult, divided, but stable postwar period, one marked by integration and prosperity in the West and stagnation and repression in the East. This course will examine the political, cultural and economic dimensions of Europe's dark century.
