This is a survey of modern history from a global perspective. Part One begins with the political and economic revolutions of the late 1700s and tracks the transformation of the world during the 1800s. Part One concludes as these bewildering changes seem to be running beyond the capacity of older institutions to handle them. Throughout the course we try to grasp what is happening and ask: Why? And the answers often turn on very human choices.

I liked the course so much, I have already enrolled in the second half. I enjoyed picking apart history by its cause and effect scenario. Clear, easy to understand and enjoyable.
This course shows an excellent view of the main historical facts. I recommend this program who is interested to understand the current global movement.
Thanks professor Zelikow.
The course was very informative. Teacher focused on ideas and ideologies rather than just facts.
The course helped me to know what shaped the world in the 18th and 19th century.
I am fascinated with week one, even though I work in the scientific side, also like history, nothing more rewarding than visiting and ancient place and know what happened... Thanks
