Comparative Education Review, v44 n1 p29-53 Feb 2000
Changes in university history curricula were studied through examination of course titles and abstracts from 335 university catalogs representing 89 countries, 1895-1964. Findings demonstrate that decreasing curricular emphases on Western civilization, metropolitan centers, and nation-states and increasing attention to subnational and supranational aspects of social systems reflect a transformation to more global models of "society."
