Global society

Write an informed, thoughtful, well-balanced essay in response to the following question: In the late 19th and early 20th centuries (I.e., from about 1880 to 1920), was global society mainly shaped by ideas that had originated in the Enlightenment, or were other world views (e.g., Christianity, Confucianism, Islam, etc.) equally influential? Keep in mind that the relationship between political ideologies like Marxism-Leninism and the Enlightenment is open to interpretation. Your essay should be 2-4 pages (500-1000 words). It must have a thesis and draw upon at least three pieces of primary evidence. All evidence must be cited from Shaping of The Modern World, 3rd edition, by Robert Strayer.
