Choose a contemporary international event and show how understanding history might be used to help us better understand this event. You do not have to provide all the historical details, but draw at least three important connections between your contemporary and historical events of your choice, and show how we can learn about the contemporary one from the other.
Be sure to reference theories/perspectives and levels of analysis in your response. I am much more concerned with your ability to critically evaluate current international events by applying useful theories than your depth of historical knowledge
Your response will be 5 pages, double-spaced 12 point Times New Roman font.
