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

Fall 2010

Class Number: 1314
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.
