Dr. Lester Pittman will lead a weekly discussion group on world history and current events based on the book and BBC video series, Civilization: The West and the Rest by historian Niall Ferguson. Discussions will compare the modern history of Europe, China, the Middle East, Japan, Africa, the United States, and Latin America as well as the roots of modernization and the impact of globalization. Are western civilization and the United States exceptional or can other regions and countries successfully modernize as well? How will globalization and the rise of the rest of the world affect Americans?
