Course Description

Based on the scholarship of Jared Diamond, Ian Bremmer, and Fareed Zakaria, this course will explore how a composite of contemporary nations have reacted, survived, and adapted as a result of prolonged crises. Do nations as a whole employ the same coping mechanisms that individuals do in times of apparent overwhelming difficulties? Why do some countries succeed in defending their sovereignty, forms of governance, culture, and economic systems while others do not? As Thomas L. Friedman suggests, how do the United States and the world thrive in a world of threatening accelerations? History, and the review of specific case studies, will depict how nations have risen to find solutions to insurmountable problems.
