World History Homework Ten Answers - Student Four
1. When and where was the Industrial Revolution? The Revolution started fully in 1760. Then, aided by the economic insights of Adam Smith, England’s economy continued to transform, it grew and expanded until 1840. It took place and began in England, and although England attempted to hide the secret of their Industrial Revolution, it spread to Belgium in 1807, then France in 1848, and Germany in 1870. The industrial revolution did not reach eastern Europe until the early 1900s, and China and India did not undergo the conversion until the mid-1900s.
2. Pick your two favorite scientists or mathematicians from the 1800s and explain what you like about them. Louis Pasteur and Bernhard Riemann. I like Louis Pasteur because he had an amazing, persevering attitude that caused him to never give up on anything he set his mind to. He spent years upon years, never giving up, and his reward of perseverance proved to be world changing. I like Bernhard Riemann because he was so passionate about math that when he became bored in his usual class, he went to the principal and requested a more difficult level! This is an amazing example of a enthusiasm towards learning that every one in this day and age should follow!
3. Do you think the Industrial Revolution was good or bad, and why? I think it was definitely good! Because it resulted in the growth of ideas and passions that proved very helpful and key to the entire world's growth and development!
4. Give an example of nationalism from the lecture, with dates. In 1831, in Italy, a prominent nationalist named Giuseppe Mazzini began to argue strongly for the unification of Italy as one nation, and formed the “Brotherhood of Young Italy”. 20 years later, a leader from the "Brotherhood of Young Italy" rallied an army together, and successfully overthrew the Spanish Bourbon king of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies. This is definitely a living example of passionate nationality!
5. What is imperialism? Describe the four patterns of imperialism. Imperialism is one nation or high branch of power trying to have complete control and domination over another nation or people. The four patterns of imperialism are:
1. Establish colonies (i.e. the British colonies in America, whereby the European power had direct influence or control over the colonies).
2. Establish protectorates, whereby the region has its own government and is an independent country, but is protected by a larger country. (i.e. Puerto Rico and Guam today).
3. Less direct form of imperialism was “spheres of influence,” where the European country had special trading privileges over the region.
4. “Economic imperialism,” where the outside influence was exerted not by a country but by a private business over a region.
6. Describe an aspect of Africa in the 1800s, such as an example of imperialism.
7. Pick any aspect of Asian history in the 1800s and describe and discuss it.
