To understand the complexities of the modern world, we must have a firm grasp of international relations. What forces - political, social, or economic - have changed our world since 1945? What was the Cold War and what does its ending mean? This course uses history to illuminate relations and developments in specific areas, such as Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. It also trains students in how to formulate questions and find information effectively. (Formerly HST 500).
