In your own words, define the term ‘nationalism.’ Give TWO examples of its potency as a force to unite or divide people in the period 1850-80. To what extent and in what ways did global warfare become industrialized in this period? Give TWO specific examples that illustrate the impact of industrial warfare. In your opinion, which of China or Japan more effectively responded to the challenges of Western influence and intrusion in the years 1850-80. Explain your choice, using specific examples. The United States of America was founded, in part, on the revolutionary rights of ‘Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.’ In your opinion, did the American Civil War of 1861-65 confirm or betray these ideals. Explain your choice. Throughout this period (indeed, until the late 1800s) women around the world were excluded from voting. Yet two of the age’s longest-serving and most successful monarchs were Queen Victoria (r. 1837-1901) and Empress Dowager Cixi (r. 1861-1908), who ruled, respectively, over the British and Chinese empires.
