twentieth-century West so violent

Project description
Write an essay that answers the following question. Make sure you use good evidence and examples from lectures and the readings to support your arguments:
The number of people who died unnatural deaths in the twentieth-century West?death through violence or politically motivated deprivation?is truly staggering, with the number of victims reaching well into the tens of millions. Why was the twentieth-century West so violent? Explain what you think are the three most important factors that led to such bloodshed and killing over the century. Overall, was this high death toll attributable to the same factors we have seen causing violence in the West throughout the semester, only on a larger scale, or were there unique new elements in the twentieth century that especially contributed to the brutality?

Please use BOTH textbook and module readings for my essays. Some quotes from both of them would help my grade.
Also my TA posted this:
These essays are not research papers, but papers designed to evaluate how well you can use material from this class?readings, lectures, and discussions?to present a convincing historical argument. In order for it to be successful, you will need to draw on both lecture and reading material. If I see material in your paper that did not come from our class, it will only hurt your score, and I will grow suspicious about where you found this information if you have not cited it properly. Anyone caught plagiarizing?i.e., presenting other people?s ideas as if they were your own?will be punished according to the cheating policy on the syllabus. If you have any questions about what does and does not constitute plagiarism (some cases of plagiarism are due more to carelessness rather than an intention to cheat), do not hesitate to ask me.
-To cite documents and books we have read in this class, you need only put the author?s name in parentheses at the end of the sentence that contains the quote or reference, followed by the page number. You need not cite lecture material?I will know the material you are pulling from the lectures
So please use our text book and the modules readings that I will upload only!
The text book we’r using is : Joshua Cole, et al., Western Civilizations, Volume 2, Brief Third Edition (New York: Norton, 2013) ISBN: 978-0-393-11982-4
