Industrialization and Western Global Hegemony
As the West becomes increasingly dominant, the rest of the world will be transformed as well. Some regions will join the west, some will be overwhelmed, and some regions will resist by various means. By the time this unit ends people will fly in airplanes, make telephone calls, and receive vaccinations. Entire empires will have fallen, and democratic revolutions will have spread through much of the world. In short, this will be the era where most of what you’ve learned this year becomes the world you see around you.
