(genetics, birthplace, and physicality)
Culture:  Things that tend to change as a person grows and gets older. Culture 
is based on things people learn and adopt into their ever day lives 
(language, religion, customs, and traditions) 
WEEK 2 cont: Nation­State and Devolution:  Political revolution that transformed Europe laid ground work for a sense of nationalism
that began the transition to Nation­States. Dictatorship and Monarchial rule were 
beginning to diminish with this revolution due to the increased amounts of treaties that 
shifted power more towards the people instead of the royal. 
Nation­a group of people that share a same language, heritage, religion, and/or political 
State­ refers to the government of a particular area When both come together it is referred to as a Nation­State because most of the populace 
shares the characteristics of a nation and has the same governmental views.
background image Devolution: “refers to the process whereby regions or people within a state demand 
independence and autonomy at the central government’s expense” this refers to when an 
ethnic group wants to separate from a larger state.
Centrifugal and centripetal forces:  Centrifugal: are forces that pull/put negative pressure on a country Centripetal: are forces that bring a nation together table 2.9 in our book shows examples of both forces Language:  Germanic language is found mainly in Northern Europe Romance is Latin based and found in Southern Europe Slavic is found primarily in Eastern Europe Benelux Countries:  Some of the most densely populated countries, sitting right below sea level. They are collectively
known as the Low Countries. There are many cultural differences among these countries, but 
they have overcome them and excelled in creating a common economic objective. 
WEEK 3: Reforms in Europe after the fall of the Soviet Union: Communism to Democracy Central Planning to Open Market Government Control to Private Citizens Soviet Union to European Union
