INR: Europe on the Brink -Europe in 1800- Latin Revolution, Greece fought for their independence o Russia wanted more land to have warmer areas to be able to ship their goods because during winter their oceans freeze over. o Otto von Bismarck: 1862 Prime Minister for Prussia Empire, created alliances to have a plan for anything  Prussia went to war with Austria: Prussia won o 1871 Germany was created -Europe in 1900- Germany went against France for land o 1914: Germany, Italy, Austria= Triple Alliance. Italy made it Triple Alliance in 1881. Triple alliance was an alliance with each other but if were attacked the other country would stay neutral. If France attacked Italy then Germany and Austria would help. If France attacked Germany then Italy and Austria would help. But if Austria was attacked by Russia, Italy would stay neutral. o Triple Entente: France, Britain, and Russia were in alliance with each other. o -Gavrilo Princip: most influential person in the 20 century world history. o Franz Ferdinand went to Serbia where Princip went through several trail and errors to assassinate Ferdinand till he got his opportunity because Ferdinand’s driver took a wrong turn causing WWI. o WWI went directly into WWII.  Germany was forced to sign the Treaty of Versailles which is why WWII happened because Germany was in a Depression where Hitler was able to influence the people to bring them together in some sense of nationalism. o WWII went directly into the Cold War o 1914: flexible agreements multipolar to bipolar wasn’t stable which allowed the chain reaction of wars o Germany and Russia knew there was going to be a war so they both planned for it by moving their troops out so the war wouldn’t be fought at home and laid railroad tracks(Germany) INR: The Rest of How we got here -Levels of Analysis: Domestic (States) International (Units) Transnational (Multi Nation Corporations) -Three Images: Individual State System o Intersection of political, economic, and social are dependent on the solution of political outcome. Ex. 1870-1914: Gold system: set the currency to an ounce of gold -Transparent trading opportunities, Before WWI it was considered the Old World. o Rise of fascism was a domestic problem: Italy, Germany o Hyperinflation: where the paper of money doesn’t worth anything anymore(Germany) o Middle Class hits the hardest in the economy -Germany was forced to sign the Treaty of Versailles where Germany had to pay France but Germany’s money had fell so it wasn’t worth anything. o Hitler made that his way to the top because he wanted the German people feel proud that others will remember Germany. o Following WWI, the United States was isolated, League of Nations by President Wilson.  1920-1935USA retreated from the world, Russia did the same. -Cold War: nuclear weapon countries wanted to fight. Communism vs. Democracy o NATO, Warsaw Pac, and Proxy Wars: little wars to help the little countries from being swallowed up by the big guys. o Fall of Berlin Wall, Collapse of the Soviet Union: globalization.
