"What History Tells": European Racism, Anti-Semitism, and the Fate of Liberalism, 1890-1945

"Racism is reviving in a big way all over, in our own country as well as in Europe." – George L. Mosse, 1991 WHA interview. We examine how European society constructed "others" and "outsiders" between 1890-1945. Follow two of Professor Mosse's ongoing questions: How did individuals and political movements cultivate and advocate a hatred of "outsiders?" Why were liberal democratic systems unable to adapt to mass movements or counter extremist political ideologies?
