General Instructions: Remember, the main goals here are three in
number: 1) make sure you identify and then utilize at least one of the
sources we’ve covered in class in at least one of your essays (which
in your preparation identifying those sources that would be
2) make certain that you develop an argument or overall point that you
to make for each of the three questions and 3) make sure that you
each of the points you make in the essay with some kind of evidence,

III. Conditions For Taking the Final Examination.
- Using what you have learned in this course about the 20th
century, including the period after World War II, make a case for or
against a developing country's embracing globalization, i.e. the
increasing integration of cultures and societies in an interlocking
world-wide system of economic, social and political forces.
- Western democratic nations often portray themselves as
bastions of freedom and promoters of international welfare, a habit
they got into in the course of the 19th century and one which was
reinforced by the Cold War after World War II. Given what you now
know about the post-World War II era, write an essay in which you
defend or oppose the following statement: Outside their own borders,
the policies of Western liberal democracies
in the post-World War II era have been no more, but certainly no less,
repressive than those enacted by states more often thought of as
authoritarian, such as the People's Republic of China.
ostensibly on opposite sides of the Cold War, in reality South Africa
and Communist China were actually very similar societies in terms of
their approach to organizing social and economic life. Agree or
disagree and explain why.
I have adopted the policy below for the final examination as an
insurance policy for everyone. I want everyone to have the same chance
