HIST 252
Fall 2010
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: ENVS 252

Industrialization is a global process with diverse consequences for the societies and environments it incorporates. This course will investigate the development and application of systematic knowledge to agriculture and manufactures in 18th -21st century societies. Although special attention will be devoted to the British and American examples, the course will be organized by commodity rather than nationality, focusing on traffic in materials used in production of food, clothing, and medicines: for example, cotton, rubber, guano, wheat, bananas, and quinine.

Comparative historical analysis is a basis for understanding cultural and institutional diversity and interdependency.
