Western Europe in the Modern World Modern World History - Lickey Introduction Much of what defines the modern world developed in Western Europe during the last five centuries. During the next three weeks you will study four key historical themes that have profoundly shaped the history of Europe and the entire world. These themes are (1) the development of modern political systems, (2) the Industrial Revolution, (3) European Imperialism, and (4) war in the modern world. As you study each of these historical developments you will actively assess in what ways modernization brought true progress.
