History 331 (Hi 31) European Socialism

Class Time: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2:30PM-3:45PM

Description of the Course: This course examines one of the major political ideologies of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to assess the impact of an intellectual tradition on the institutions of Modern Europe. Socialists sought to reorder the governments and economic systems of Europe to reflect the needs of working people, and in so doing the socialist movement posed a fundamental challenge to the estabished hierarchy of European society.

Topics Covered Include: The origins of socialist thought in the early nineteenth century, the ideas of Karl Marx, the growth of socialist political parties, the emergence of Russian Communism, and the development of the socialized, welfare states of Western Europe in the second half of the twentieth century.

This course is taught by: Professor Phil Pajakowski
