Overview

This course takes a historical and comparative approach to the study of how nation states have reacted to, and dealt with, the effects of globalization. As the economies of countries around the world have become increasingly intertwined, so governments have been forced to adapt in order to survive and prosper.

Our course takes an in-depth look at how countries such as the United States, Britain, Russia, and China have fared in the new globalized world. We will also look at how ordinary people have been affected by, and have reacted to, globalization. Throughout the course, issues of ethnicity, gender, class, and age will be to the fore as we strive to discover how the world came to be as it is today.
