HIST 440W History of Modern Socialism (1)

This course surveys the history of the European socialist movement from the eighteenth-century to the present, examines the ideas of the utopian socialists, the development of Marxism, and the relationship of Marxism to other schools of socialist and radical leftist thought. The course studies the development of socialist ideas and the socialist movement in the context of the process of industrialization and social change that has transformed society in the last two centuries. While the emphasis of the course is on European socialist history, time will also be devoted to the prospects for socialism in the new century.
