Section Information for Spring 2023

This course provides an overview of the history of what is commonly called “the West” from its origins in ancient Greece to the present.  More to the point, it shows how events over this expanse of time have shaped the world we live in today.  Given the broad sweep of this course, it is impossible to cover every era and topic in detail.  Instead, it will highlight various developments - political, economic, and social - that, together, have created a unique civilization and paved the way to the world in which we now live in the early 21st century.
