World History is a fascinating class that begins with the origins of the democratic system in Greece, Rome & the Enlightenment on France during the 1700's. These concepts transition us right into the American Revolution and the French Revolution. With these revoluions, the "Industrial Times" began to change the world! New inventions from scientific minds made rural and urban life easier, but with these positive changes came great consequences like overcrowding, polution and disease. Imperialism followed with industrial nations taking over weaker countries for thier natural resources and raw materials. We also study the long term causes of both World Wars, and the conflicts between communism and capitolism during the Cold War.
