To prepare for this Discussion:

  • Review the Lukacs and Mulligan readings in this week’s Learning Resources.
  • Recall the immediate events and circumstances that brought about the start of World War I. How and why did events unfold as they did?
  • Consider the various causes of World War I. To what extent did the alliance system, imperialism, the arms race, public opinion, the missteps of national leaders, or other factors contribute to the start of the war? 

Post a 2- to 3-paragraph assessment of the long-term and short-term causes of World War I, including which of these causes you think were the most influential. Support your assertions by making multiple references to your course readings.

Mulligan, W. (2011, March). “The Origins of the First World War.” History Review.
