This is my 26th World History offering and the 3rd in my Unit 6 (1900-Present.) This PPT starts off with examining the Russian Revolution by reviewing how Nicholas II got into power, through events like the Russo-Japanese War and Bloody Sunday. I then move into socialist movement and different thoughts at the time. Discuss the Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks and the triumph of Lenin and the Bolsheviks. I then move into Stalin's rise to power and look specifically at his totalitarian reign. The next section I tackle is the collapse of imperial China starting with the Nationalists and Sun Yat-Sen, the Communists and Mao Zedong including the long march. The next section tackles nationalism in India and the Middle East including Gandhi and the push for Indian independence, Persia becoming Iran, creation of Saudi Arabia and modern-day Turkey. The last section tackles Africa and the movements for independence during the 1920s and 1930s.
