Final Examination Study Guide
The final exam will have three parts: Part A is an OPTIONAL extra credit quiz. Part B is a Compulsory essay question, and Part C is similar in structure to the mid-term: of the three essay questions given in Part C, two will be selected at random at the beginning of the exam, and you will be required to answer ONE of the two questions thus selected. The final exam will take place in HALE 270 on Monday, 7 May 2018, from 1:30 – 4:00 p.m. You should bring two blue books and two pens.
The exam is worth 30% of your course grade. The extra-credit quiz is worth a maximum of 5 points, to be added to the total score earned on the final. Parts B and C are equally weighted: Part B is worth 50% and Part C is worth 50%. In answering the questions in Parts B and Part C, you should draw upon relevant information from the lectures, the textbook, and the assigned readings for the Why? So What? questions. Answers for Parts B and C should be written as essays, with an introductory and concluding paragraph and several supporting paragraphs in which you provide evidence and analysis to support the argument you make in the introductory paragraph. Points will be deducted for errors in grammar, spelling, and sentence/paragraph structure only if these errors are so severe as to compromise your ability to make your arguments clearly.
Part A: Extra Credit Quiz — this is OPTIONAL
The extra credit quiz will take place during the first 10 minutes of the final examination. If you choose to take advantage of this opportunity, you must be present at the beginning of the exam. The extra credit quiz will be distributed at the beginning of the exam period and all answer sheets will be collected ten minutes later. If you arrive after the ten minutes have elapsed you will not be able to take the quiz.
Insert in the second column of the table given below the correct year (chosen from chronological list given in the third column) of the ten following events. Each correct answer is worth .5 points for a maximum of 5 points. All points earned on the extra credit quiz will be added to the total, out of 100 points, earned on the final exam.

Part B: Compulsory Question 50%
Nationalism, which emerged in the years of the French Revolution and Napoleonic era (1789 – 1814), has often proved to be a disruptive and destructive force in the history of Europe from the late eighteenth century to the end of World War II. In an essay that draws upon lecture material, course readings, and material covered in the textbook, explain first why nationalism emerged during the French Revolutionary era and how it contributed to the downfall of the Napoleonic armies. Then analyze the significance of nationalism as a disruptive force during the revolutions of 1848: in which parts of Europe were nationalist demands especially potent, what was the nature of these demands, and to what extent, if any, were they successfully met during the revolutions of 1848-49? Finally, analyze the role of nationalism in bringing about World War II and contributing to the atrocities inflicted on European civilians during that war.
Part C: 50%
Two of the following three questions will be selected at random at the beginning of the exam. You must answer one of the two questions thus selected. Your essay should draw upon relevant information from the lectures, the textbook, and, where appropriate, the assigned readings for the Why? So What? questions. You will receive no credit for answering a question not selected at the time of the examination.
1. Why did the Industrial Revolution emerge first in Britain; what were its fundamental characteristics; and how did it transform the lives of British workers in the first half of the nineteenth century?
2. Why does it make sense to speak of World War I as “the Great War”? How did it affect ordinary men and women who experienced it? And how did it bring about significant change in the social and political character of Russia, Germany, and Austria-Hungary in the years between 1914 and 1918?
3. What is fascism? Why did it emerge in Europe in the years following World War I? How did the fascist principles set forth in the Nazis’ Twenty-Five Point Program of 1920 shape the military and racial policies of Nazi Germany between 1933 and 1945?
