54:258 The World since 1940 [Naylor]

    A survey of world history since the Second World War.  This course examines World War II and the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States.  It also focuses on the evolving relationships between the industrialized countries of the "global north” and the low-income countries of the "majority world,” with particular attention paid to revolutionary movements in countries such as Cuba and Vietnam, African nationalism, and the emergence of Islam as a political force in the modern world.
