Courses: Europe 1914 -1945-Challenge of the Masses (HISTB229001)

Fall 2009

Class Number: 1352
I or III
New Course: In the early 20th century, elite and middle-class
Europeans felt their culture and way of life were threatened by a
growing “massification” of society. Modern warfare and economic
crises demanded the mobilization of entire societies, while mass
production, marketing and consumption, mass media and expanding
suffrage poised to undermine their society. This drive to develop
political institutions, ideologies and strategies suited to a new mass
age was informed by theories of psychology and mass society.
