Dictators, Kings, and CEOs: The Evolution of Empire
Empires are perhaps the single most formative phenomenon in history. Survey influential empires through the ages and learn how they impacted the development of the world politically, culturally, socially, and militarily. Follow Augustus as his legions spread the glory of Rome across Europe. Ride with Genghis Khan as he shakes the foundations of the civilized world with terror. Examine the spread of American culture and beliefs across the globe, from McDonald's to democracy. Engage in literary analysis and historical research at Duke University's libraries.
