Modern Patterns in World History

Order Description

In the twentieth century, globalization and modernization contributed to the outbreak of incredibly violent global conflicts. The First World War and the Second World War shaped the first half of
the century, and the Cold War dominated the second. Each war demonstrated humanity’s capacity for extraordinary destruction. These wars disrupted millions of lives and led to political upheaval and
redrawing of national boundaries.
Prepare a multimedia presentation that describes the causes of one of these conflicts and discusses the effects of the conflict on three different regions of the globe. In addition, you will
analyze how a primary source relates to the conflict in your presentation.
