|Subject Overview:||This subject combines historical and theoretical analysis of topics in international relations from the end of World War II to the "war on terror". Topics examined may include how policymakers apply the "lessons" of history; the causes and consequences of wars; the role of international organizations and non-state actors; and transnational cultural, environmental, and economic flows.
