Applied History Anthologies

The anthology with student esssays from last year's course in Applied History is now available in online bookstores.

The Applied History course at the Stockholm School of Economics highlights the importance of history, especially with regard to great power rivalry and issues of world order, in order to facilitate understanding our own age. It is devised to teach students the many ways in which a deep historical understanding - a historical sensibility - can expand their knowledge of contemporary policy issues in economics and politics, as well gaining insights into how decision makers have used and misused history.

In accordance with an educational tradition of 'small groups, big ideas', twelve students have participated in seminars with renowned scholars of history, international relations, and economics from Sweden, the UK, the US, and Finland. The anthology contains the students' final essays. As in the course lectures and literature, topics span from antiquity to the Cold War.
