Chapter 25 Part VI


John Stuart Mill, On Liberty
Benjamin Disraeli
People's Budget
William Gladstone
Irish Home Rule


What were the various reforms instituted in England in the late 19th century?  Be sure to include policies from Benjamin Disraeli, William Gladstone, as well as the People's Budget (which was after Gladstone). Why was the House of Lords unsuccessful in vetoing these measures?

Look up on your own: Describe the road to women's suffrage in Britain in the early 20th century.  Who were Millicient Fawcett and Emmeline Pankhurst?  How did Parliament respond to their demands?

How did the Irish achieve home rule?  Why did northern Ireland stay with Great Britain?

Why does the Austro-Hungarian Empire establish a dual monarchy?  How successful is this new government?

What are the reasons for growing anti-Semitism, especially in central/Eastern Europe?  What are the responses to this?
