Peoples School for Marxist Leninist Studies

Feb 27, 2024

This class is the next PSMLS installment in this series on the history of U.S. imperialism. With the last class leaving off at the end of the Cold War and the counter-revolution in the Soviet Union, they now cover the subsequent rise of American unipolarity. This class spans from 1991-2005. First PSMLS addresses the counter-revolution in the USSR and counter-revolutions across the world at the beginning of the 1990’s, as well as US/NATO intervention in Iraq, Kuwait, Bosnia and more during the decade. The second section covers the September 11th terrorist attacks and the beginning of the so-called “War on Terror” with the launch of invasions in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as expanded intervention abroad. Lastly they address the domestic and trade issues of the time, such as NAFTA, the PATRIOT ACT, the Democratic Party change under Clinton and more.
