We will explore how the Industrial Revolution led to the separation economically of nations. As a consequence of the Industrial Revolution, the European Powers entered into a policy of Imperialism which created greater European prosperity, fostered rivalries and created animosities that will spill over later. We will go into depth to understand European Imperialism and the consequences that still influence our world today. You will learn how many of the international problem of the world today can be traced to this dynamic period of history.
Presented by James H. Robertson, who holds an MA in Modern European History from Washington State University and is an Adjunct Professor of History at Eastern University.
