HIS 354 - Post-War Europe


This course examines the rebuilding and the remarkable revival of Europe after World War Two. It will contrast the stability and “economic miracles” of western Europe with the struggles and stagnation of eastern Europe. Also, the remarkable move toward integration after the collapse of the Communist regimes stands in contrast with the fragmentation and civil war that struck others. In addition the course will pay special attention to “globalization” of Europe. By the twenty first century the continent, thoroughly changed br decolonization and immigration, has little in common with the Europe of 1945. The course will seek to understand how this transformation happened, and what it means for the future of Europe, democracy, and the world.
