20) Toussaint L’Ouverture

The best-known leader of the Haitian Revolution. He saved the gains of the first Black insurrection in November 1791. He first fought for the Spanish against the French; then for France against Spain and Britain; and finally, for Saint-Domingue (modern Haiti)'s colonial sovereignty against Napoleonic France. He then helped transform the insurgency into a revolutionary movement, which by 1800 had turned Saint-Domingue, the most prosperous slave colony of the time, into the first free colonial society to have explicitly rejected race as the basis of social ranking. 

21) Louis XVI

Wanted to reform France in accordance with Enlightenment ideas. These included efforts to abolish serfdom and increase tolerance toward non-Catholics. The French nobility didn’t like it. Louis deregulated the grain market, resulting in an increase in bread prices. In periods of bad harvests, it would lead to food scarcity which would prompt the masses to revolt. 

The ensuing debt and financial crisis contributed to his unpopularity. This led to the convening of the Estates-General of 1789. Discontent among the members of France's middle and lower classes resulted in strengthened opposition to the French aristocracy and to the absolute monarchy. In 1789, the storming of the Bastille during riots in Paris marked the beginning of the French Revolution.

Louis's indecisiveness and conservatism led people to view him as a symbol of tyranny and his popularity deteriorated progressively. He tried to flee in 1791, four months before the constitutional monarchy was declared. The credibility of the king was deeply undermined, and the abolition of the monarchy and the establishment of a republic became an ever-increasing possibility. Louis XVI was extremely indecisive and looked at in a negative way by many of the French people.

24) Romanticism

Romanticism was characterized by its emphasis on emotion and individualism as well as glorification of all the past and nature, preferring the medieval rather than the classical. It was partly a reaction to the Industrial Revolution, the aristocratic social and political norms of the Age of Enlightenment, and the scientific rationalization of nature.It was embodied most strongly in the visual arts, music, and literature, but had a major impact on historiography, education, and the natural sciences. It had a significant and complex effect on politics, and while for much of the Romantic period it was associated with liberalism and radicalism, its long-term effect on the growth of nationalism was perhaps more significant.

Social contract theory is the view that a person’s moral and/or political obligations are dependent upon a contract or agreement among them to form the society in which they live. Social contract theory is rightly associated with modern moral and political theory and is given its first full exposition and defense by Thomas Hobbes.

Essay: Two of the following three essays will appear on the exam. You only have to do one. Your essay will be assessed on its argument, clarity of thought and organization, and its use of information from both lecture and readings. An essay that does not refer to primary sources will be inadequate. You do not have to quote from the books we have read; you merely have to reference them. 

1) While the terms “nationalism”, “liberalism”, and “socialism” are still a part of the modern political vocabulary, these terms carried a somewhat different meaning between the years of 1815 and 1848. In this essay, explain the meaning of these terms during the years of 1815-1848, using specific examples from the lectures, textbook, and course readings. Be sure to acknowledge any overlap between “isms”, and identify key groups that represented these particular ideologies. (Textbook, p. 559)
