HIST 11 THE WEST AND THE WORLD SINCE THE RENAISSANCE

3 Units - 3 hours lecture
Transfers: CSU, UC
The course considers the principal developments of Western civilization within a global context. Students explore the impact of Western themes, institutions, and ideas upon non-Western cultures, as well as the corresponding influence of non-Western cultures upon the “Western heritage.” Special emphasis will be given to the emergence of such themes as the nation-state, rationalism and empiricism, industrialization, liberalism, nationalism, socialism, modern imperialism, post-war realignments, and geopolitics. The course traces the development of European culture from the 16th century to the present, and throughout this entire period, its relations and exchanges with non-Western cultures, including China, Japan, Africa, and the Americas.
