CPOLS 3300 Violence, Markets and Globalization

This course offers survey of political thought since the mid-twentieth century. We examine a series of provocative attempts to make sense of the most striking political and social events of the last half-century: the rise and decline of right-wing (fascist and National Socialist) dictatorships, Holocaust, emergence of the welfare state, decolonization and proliferation of national liberation movements, a seemingly endless sequence of terrible wars, the worldwide spread of liberal democracy, and globalization.
