INGS3603: Conflict and Its Consequences

The last century's conflicts have continued into the present. Beginning with the events of 9/11, we analyse the important conflicts of the last century: World War II and the Cold War. We will examine conflicts in Asia and Latin America, intra-communist conflicts, insurgencies, drug wars, religious wars and genocidal struggles and their consequences.
