Topics covered will include the Treaty of Versailles, the rise of fascism in Germany and Italy, the Great Depression, the Japanese invasion of Manchuria and the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Soviet Union under Stalin (including the Ukrainian famine and the Great Terror), U.S. isolationism, the Spanish Civil War and events leading up to World War II. | Lecture + Q&A.
