chronology 20 points The Long Essay Everyone will write on the following question Remember that this is your opportunity to strut the stuff you have learned in this course It is late November 2008 The American public has determined how its electors will vote and a new regime is on its way to power One of the pressing matters confronting this new regime is the establishment of a foreign policy including the circumstances under which the military might be deployed overseas or since your administration inherits the deployment already existing under the old regime the circumstances under which the military might be withdrawn You have been hired as a consultant in the formation of that new foreign policy As a student of Western Civilization you are well acquainted with the ways in which European and Mediterranean society has been organized over the past four millennia from Bronze Age despotisms to the Greek polis the multiethnic Roman Empire Germanic warlords medieval national monarchies the emergence of the territorial nation state over the past four hundred years and the possible decline of that political model recently in supernational institutions like the European Union as well as the fragmenting of nationalist projects like Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union Consider the attempt of the past American administration to forge constitutional states in western and central Asia based on Enlightenment principles of liberty republicanism access to education and the very idea of the right of a people to national self determination Can the projects of the previous administration succeed in regions outside of the European tradition What can your new administration do to make them succeed or how might it redefine success Or should your new administration just butt out and at what cost The president elect has paid you a lot of money for your expert opinion Make sure it is a good one with an argument well grounded in history There might even be a job waiting in the State Department The Medium Essay As before on the Midterm You will be given a choice between two of the following and asked to write on one The essayis a writing exercise Accordingly you should compose your answer in narrative format Not bullets Not an outline Instead well constructed paragraphs that conform to the rules of English style and composition Your essay should be argumentative Stake a claim earlyin your essay formulate it clearly as a thesis statement and then spend the rest of the essay defending that claim with specific reference to the course texts and lectures Remember that a blank sheet of paper is worth zero points Your task is to fill it up with points 1 Tmz39tan39al N atim S mtg From the late Middle Ages to the twentieth century the European

massacre in 1572 there emerged in Europe a political discourse regarding the location of political sovereignty and the circumstances under which the citizen might resist or even overthrow that

texts that denied that right Discuss also some of the ways in which those ideologies were manifested in European political events Ramon orna Beginning with the Reformation in the sixteenth century and continuing through nineteenth century industrialization Europe looked with growing confidence on its own progress What evidence was there for European progress What evidence was there that such progress was illusory Who were the harbingers of irrational forces and what was their message The Chwdl During the thirteenth century the Church stood at the peak of its power as the quotpapal monarchyquot Thereafter it underwent a series of crises that culminated in the Protestant Reformation and beyond Describe the narrative of church history from the fourteenth to the seventeenth century
