Using A People’s History of the World by Chris Harman, this course will study the broad trends in the history of our world, from early human civilization to the near present. From September through May we will read the book in its entirety, with participant presentations of chapters followed by thorough discussion and additional context. The goal of the course is not to understand every moment or every place in global history, but to use a Marxist perspective to understand major trends and significant junctures in world history, and how those trends and junctures have shaped our present.

Branden Rippey is a history teacher in Newark, New Jersey, a founding member of the Newark Education Workers (NEW Caucus), and active in socialist politics.
