					                      Western Europe in the Modern World
                                           Modern World History - Lickey


         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. In addition, you will assess the human costs associated with
modernization, judging for yourself if progress is indeed the right world for the modern history of
Western Europe.
