History 12-1: Finishing pre-Revolution Russia
Next, we read a summary of the Stolypin agricultural reforms and the new prime minister's reaction to the terrorism and expropriations that were so common in that era. From there, we finished our analysis of the Fundamental Laws and noted that the Tsar kept far too much power from the Duma to make it really effective as a means to modernize the monarchy. At that point I stopped to give you the last 25 minutes to read and answer today's assignment:
In DeMarco, read pp. 39-40 and answer all of Ex #2 and read pp. 40-41and answer all of Ex #3 and all of Ex #4 EXCEPT you need not write the paragraph for "f." (Remember, if you didn't do yesterday's work, you also have Ex #1 to compete).
