Conscription, pacifism, humanitarian campaigns, and socialist pursuits emerged from the struggle to form politics inside international locations for many years to come back. Governments realized the price of propaganda, either in print and in movie. Society replaced: ladies have been emancipated in a few nations and citizenship used to be altered in lots of locations, whereas aristocracy and monarchies went into decline. eu empires have been reworked and on occasion destroyed; within the heart East, the swap used to be huge, immense, starting with the ultimate cave in of Ottoman hegemony within the sector. Fascism and communism, mass migration, independence, militarism, an influenza epidemic, the increase of Wall highway and American monetary energy, a slowdown within the strategy of globalization, and the pursuit of worldwide peace by way of a firm in keeping with collective protection numbered one of the most important and lasting legacies of this clash. past 1917 explores how and why the struggle has turn into an essential milepost for human background, displays the significance of the clash, the forces that resulted in it, and the forces it unleashed. at the celebration of the centennial commemorations, a global crew of students considers the long term coverage, political, social, monetary, and cultural effects of the battle for the us itself and for the realm. as well as interpretive essays, the amount offers a accomplished bibliography and timeline of events."--

Shotwell ensured that the international community of authors adhered to the tenets of the ideological project behind the Carnegie History: to show that war was not only an illegitimate but an unsound policy choice. He hoped that the lessons of the war, as it had been experienced across fifteen countries, would go on to shape and standardize social and economic policies in a world made insecure by the global reach of social problems. This essay analyzes the “history wars” that ensued in the two decades after the First World War through the prism of the Carnegie History, and it charts the changing interpretations of the social and economic transformations that had been brought about by the war.

To be sure, women in Europe, North America, and elsewhere had been actively involved in humanitarian activities, ranging from alcoholic prohibition to drug control, and there were active political movements for women’s right to vote in national elections. One may note in this connection that one of the causes that various women’s groups promoted at that time was birth control, especially eugenics. 21 Those who were judged to be of less than average intelligence were considered to be inferior, objects of social policy to discourage them from producing more children like them.

Such restrictiveness and segregation were not limited to the West, however. In many of the newly independent countries, often sharp lines were drawn between ethnic groups, and the conflict among them was endemic. The principle of “national self-​determination” that was promulgated at Versailles more often than not produced ethnically defined national entities. As many historians have noted, this principle was exemplified by the exchange of populations between Turkey and Greece after 1923 in order to make Turkey more purely Turkish and Greece more purely Greek, away from the Ottoman “model” of diversity and cohabitation.
