The World War and America Slide 1: First global conflict- involved colonies in Africa and Asia as well. Americans shocked at actions of Euro nations to one another. Felt relieved and superior- they are above the savagery of the Euro nations. May 1917 we entered the war with a higher idealism, out to transform the world to push democracy. War to end all wars. Rally around the cause of wars. Slide 3: Austria-Hungary empire of Hapsburgs. Went along with Germany for the most part. Together made up most of Central and Eastern Europe. Neither was very democratic. Allied Powers: France and GB are allies, representative gov’ts like the US. Urban-industrial countries that were large imperial powers. Russia was outlier- not a democracy (run by czars). Armisitice in 1918 ended hostilities, folloed by treaty of Paris (Versailles) in 1919. Slide 4: Never ending debate in the US regarding over whether or not will have big hand in mediating conflict or whether or not will avoid getting involved and only work in its own best interests. Unilateralism vs. cooperation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
