Chapter 22 Part II

Why did other countries in continental Europe lag behind England in industrialization?

Once they did industrialize, how did the governments of certain continental European countries aid industrialization (give examples)?


Chapter 22 Part III


There is some historical debate about whether living standards improved or declined for the working class during the Industrial Revolution.  Present evidence for each.

What were some of the earliest reform efforts during the Industrial Revolution?  Were they successful?

How did the Industrial Revolution contribute to a great sexual division of labor?

Chapter 22 Part I


Why was England the pioneer of the Industrial Revolution?  What sort of advantages did it have over other countries?

What prompted the shift to factories from the cottage industry?

Why did the factories initially experience problems with fueling/energy, and how specifically did steam power solve this?

(You did not read about the Congress of Vienna, but we will talk about it in class):  How do you think the leaders of Prussia, Russia, Austria, and Britain will want to treat France and reestablish peace in Europe following Napoleon's abdication?

Chapter 21 Part V


Napoleonic Code
Concordat of 1801
War of Second Coalition (look up)


How does the Napoleonic Code solidify some of the important achievements of the Revolution?

Who are the sans-culottes and why are they an important influence on the National Convention?

How does the Committee of Public Safety work to bring about economic change and work to strengthen the military?

How did the Reign of Terror work to control internal opposition?

How does the Thermidorian Reaction respond to the radical and anarchistic nature of the Reign of Terror?
