The Origins of the First World War

In 2019W, the topic for HIST 403A, 101 is the Origins of the First World War. We will try to understand why the Great Powers of Europe went to war against each other in 1914. Scholarly disagrreements over this question were once the result of patriotically-motivated attempts to blame one another, but now are indicative of divisions within academic history. We will exame the causes of the war and study a century's worth of historical interpretations.
