Monday November 8   Industrialism, Colonialism, and the World System The World System  A large system in which states, nations, and cultures are  economically and politically interdependent.  The “Modern World System” is global in extent.  “Isolated” human groups – we learn that there are no isolated  human groups.   Interaction has many forms and causes.  Migration, trade, warfare, competition for resources, and periodic  meetings all contribute to interdependency over time.   The “World System” is a relatively recent idea: from the 20 th  century.   This idea was first synthesized when scholars observed economic  and political links across the globe.
