Dear Humans,

I am doing my bachelor and I need to know history on a basic level in order to study modern history.

Please advise me some courses or requisites (free) that will help me to pass through history in order to understand why all the things happen and why some actors have conflicts, etc. 

I mean, very basic understanding. 

I started with the ancient times however I am afraid I will not manage to get introduced to all this long period of time within less than 2 intensive weeks.

I am looking forward for your recommendations.

Best regards!

Why not try some of the history magazines available? They tend to produce interesting and erudite articles that are easy to absorb. This week for instance I learned some insight into the 300 Spartans, female Police in post-WW1 USA, and the Franco-Prussian War. Not the sort of info that would earn me a doctorate - but it gets you up on the essentials.

I agree, you'd better start your immersion in the subject by doing research on specific questions that interest you personally. It's pointless to study physics or history if you have no interest or no questions. You may first want to investigate why countries are different, what made them different. You may check the questions that other people have asked. Then you may want to go a little further and investigate more complex social phenomena, such as, for example, how comes slavery used to be so wide-spread and now it's not, or perhaps it is still there in the world, but changed its shape etc. Then all of sudden you may find yourself pursuing your interests in other adjoined areas of economics and finance. The most important part of your studies is developing your critical thinking about any interpretations of history that you'll find in the textbooks or even in the news headlines. 

Btw, for me the term <modern history>  sounds a bit odd, because anything that is modern doesn't seem to have any traces of history yet Smile But it appears in English this term is commonly used... 
What a nonsense!
I teach history to children, and I am proud that they leave my classes permeated with sh*t and hatred to meet the real world. I see my personal historic mission in bringing madness to juvenile masses.

I quite liked this part of the interview between Turkish professor İlber Ortaylı and his used-to-be supervisor Halil İnalcık. Halil İnalcık says in order to do a PhD in Turkish history one has to have studied 6 foreign languages beforehand Wink  (both academicians are known to be polyglots)

Quote anything that is modern doesn't seem to have any traces of history yet

But we live in a world created by the actions of the past. What happens today becomes yesterdays news, and at the same time, modern history.
