What was imperialism; why were imperialists driven to imperialism and how did they justify their actions; and how did those opposed to an imperial presence in their countries articulate their opposition (i.e. what solutions did they propose)? The arguments should also refer to at least 2 but no more than 3 of the following authors: Comfort, Ferry, Hobsoa , Kipling, and/or Reed
Several different ways of configuring the relationship between society, economy, and government. Pick 3 that you think are particularly important and construct an argument that compares them. What were the most significant governmental systems before World War D; how did they differ and how were they similar; how did they relate to 1 another; what did contemporaries consider the weaknesses and strengths of each? Refer to at least 3 but no more than 4 of the following authors: Comfort, Ferry, Freud, Hitler, Hobson, Keynes, Kipling, Marx, Mill, Mussolini, Roosevelt, and/or Stalin.
Contemporary observers called World War I the “war to end all wars,” but less than a generation later, the world was once again at war. Build an argument about how the responses to global conditions after World War I undermined international stability between the wars. What were the most important defining features and causes of postwar problems; what were the various responses to those problems; which responses were especially important and why; and what general patterns emerged (i.e. how did these responses contribute to and undermine the making of a global world)? NOTE: This question is not primarily about the causes of World War I, but about the problems of the inter-war period. Refer to at least 2 but no more than 3 of the following authors: Freud, Hitler, Keynes, Mussolini, Roosevelt, and/or Stalin.
