HIS 104-85151 - Global History To 1648

Offered by: Westchester / Community College | Fall 2019

This course is a survey of global history from its origins in the fifth century B.C. in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East until the 16th century rise of Western Europe and colonial domination. A thematic approach enables the student to sort through large amounts of factual material to find patterns of development while maintaining sensitivity to cultural and ethnic differences. The rise and decline of major civilizations, the transition from an agrarian to an urban economy and the nature of warfare constitute some of the issues to be elaborated in this class. Emphasis is placed on exploring the historical roots of contemporary conflicts.
