Cours d'histoire en anglais

This class aims to present the basic historical evolutions of the United States since Independence: the revolution and the process of nation building, the phase of expansion and crisis, the rise of the industry and urban civilization, the imperialist strategy at the turn of the 19th century, the global era, and the post-war era. Apart from theses chronological fundamentals, two specific sets of questions will also be raised: the position of the USA towards the world, and in particular towards Latin America and the Caribbean; and the issue of race within the country itself.
