The course begins with an overview of war and terms and definitions as they will be used throughout the course. The detailed history covers the rise of the nation-state, the ancién regime of France and the French Revolution, the American Civil War and its economic and political consequences, World War I and the Russian Revolution, Mussolini and the fascists and Hitler and the Nazis, World War II: European & Pacific theaters, the building and dropping of the atomic bomb, and the holocaust of the Jews and American Indians. Dr. Shermer then explores the proximate and ultimate causes of all wars, employing psychology, anthropology, and evolutionary theory to explore political and economic solutions to the prevention of war.More

I wanted more!
I would to anyone interested in history, Michael Brant Shermer is a really interesting professor, he knows his stuff and puts across interesting arguments
the world war two and american civil war parts was the best, I feel he went into slavery too much
not that type of book please produce better questions
once again missing the point
Yes i would say that the worst thing about this is theres times when he gets figures wrong or estimates them but 9/10 he is correct and his arguments are sound, I really there was more of this course on here
