The Great War and the Modern World: Domination, Integration, and Betrayal
The Great War signaled the terminal crisis of the European old regime--a crisis more than a century in the making. Pursuing the story of this crisis across themes of domination, integration, and betrayal, Professor Jonas will consider the rivalries that underpinned the war and the bleak geopolitical thinking that informed them. Jonas will explore the political culture that obliterated tolerance for  difference, finding the foundations of power in nation and race. Finally, he will ask us to ponder the responsibilities of the powerful,viewed with the eyes of the young men they had persuaded to fight.

Raymond Jonas is a Professor of History at the University of Washington. His most recent book is The Battle of Adwa: African Victory in the Age of Empire. He is currently working on European expansion into post-independence Latin America.
