Course Description

The bloodbath of the Great War was over but not forgotten in the "time of pause" before another major conflagration reignited the smoldering ashes left by the war. The two decades between the world wars differ dramatically. The first, on the surface, was prosperous and full of new inventions, attitudes, and fads; the second was mired in a deep depression that led the government to abandon its philosophy of laissez-faire and set the US on the path of welfare capitalism. At the same time, the US had to face new rumblings in Asia and Europe—rumblings the US tried to ignore. "Never Again" became the slogan of most Americans. | Lecture (plus questions)
