World Group. An interdisciplinary look at the history of the Indian subcontinent in global context, from the late 15th century until today. Several factors compel Americans to study this region more closely and to understand its past relationship with world powers, including: the growth of South Asian communities in America, increasing nuclear tensions in the region, the rise of fundamentalism, the booming hi-tech economy transforming India and the world, and the daunting fact that 1 in every 6 humans of the planet is South Asian. Fall of odd years. Prerequisite(s): Junior status. (GACO)(INCO)
