Hist 12: Monday, 2 April

Today we debriefed Ex14-15 on the Middle East. The most important thing to take away from that was the fact that Britain and France had no intention of exercising self determination in the area and used the mandates as a way to extend their imperial ambitions.  Remember the importance of the oil and the Suez - link to the jewel in the British crown (India).

We also discussed the India and Gandhi PPT: we noted the role of satyagraha - or non violent resistance.  Tomorrow we'll finish the PPT at partition in 1947.  Then we'll debrief Es 16-17.  After that, we'll review for Wednesday's unit test.
