This half unit looks at the history of the non-western twentieth-century world from the vantage point of developments in the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. From empire-building to de-colonization and revolution in the Middle East, to intersections between politics and race in Southern Africa, to radical movements and US intervention in Latin America, much of what it explores complements HS2017 The Asian Resurgence by making sense of political developments in other continents where the long term trends were both similar but, in some ways, noticeably different.
