Which historical event most caused the us urban population to climb from 6 million to 44 million between 1860 and 1910?

The correct answer is: INDUSTRIALIZATION.

Industrialization succeeded due to the development of the factory production model, based on mechanization and technological progress and on generating output at a large scale.

While the agricultural sector had very low productivity levels and excess of workers, the industrial sector offered many job positions with comparatively more attractive salaries. Therefore people started to progressively move from the countryside (where most people used to work in agriculture) to cities, and the urbanization process had started.

Suppose a country saw a new leader rise to power after a political revolution. The new leader focused strongly on building military power and controlling the lives of citizens. Secret police were used to oppress detractors and enforce strict social hierarchies. How would this government best be classified? A. Fascist B. Revolutionary C. Socialist D. Authoritarian

Answer:

A. Fascist

Explanation:

Fascism is an ideology, a political movement and a type of State1 of totalitarian and undemocratic character; created by the Italian leader Benito Mussolini, it spread in interwar Europe from 1918 to 1939.

Among the features of fascism is the exaltation of values such as the homeland or race to keep the masses permanently mobilized, which has often led to the oppression of minorities (Jews, gypsies, homosexuals ...) and strong militarism. In this sense the enemy is identified as an external entity, unlike the typical left-wing totalitarianisms in which the enemy is internal (bourgeoisie).

A)Analyzing the way that different cultures have measured time B)Creating a timeline of events that led to the French Revolution C)Comparing different accounts of the same event D)Dividing China's history based on which dynasty ruled the country

The correct answer is D) Dividing China's history based on which dynasty ruled the country.

The action that is an example of periodization is "Dividing China's history based on which dynasty ruled the country."

When we are studying history, the term periodization means that we split historical time to better study those periods. Periodization is a process that helps us to classify or better study the past and put several moments in pieces of blocks for clarity purposes. These periods of time give us a better chance to understand the characteristics, moments, characters, dates and events of each time. That is why the action that is an example of periodization is "Dividing China's history based on which dynasty ruled the country."

Which historical event affected john lockes understanding of government?

Answer:

The Glorious Revolution

Details:

The Glorious Revolution in England was led by members of Parliament against King James II,  who had tried to assert greater power and control for himself as king, infringing on their rights.   The "revolution" was a change in government, mostly without violence.  In June of 1688, seven highly-placed Englishmen sent a letter of invitation to William of Orange (who was husband to James II's daughter Mary), inviting him to come to England and be supported by them and the people as king.  As king and queen, the new rulers of England became known as William III and Mary II.

The Glorious Revolution showed that the people could pursue a  change of ruling power. English philosopher John Locke wrote his Second Treatise on Civil Government in the wake of the Glorious Revolution, advocating that the people had the right to change a government if the government was not properly serving the people whom it governed.   Locke believed people are born as blank slates--with no preexisting knowledge or moral leanings. Experience then guides them to the knowledge and the best form of life, which includes choosing to form governments--and replace governments if necessary--to make society better and to protect their rights. This was his application of the "social contract" theory.

Additional note: Leaders in the American colonies became fans of the philosophy of John Locke, and believed they had the right to pursue a change in government and free themselves from control of Great Britain.
