the question "was the revolution worth the price paid and was it successful", in my view I believe yes, yes it was. The reason behind this is because even though it did not remain a republic and the monarch somewhat in the sense of Napoleon, is because it did stamp out absolutism. It made democracy more of a goal. It brought about the concept that all men should be allowed to vote regardless of wealth. Even though tens of thousands died France did change drastically by the destruction of feudalism and the abolishment of absolute power. Individual rights and the liberties were brought upon labors and the development of the middle class. Those are some of the reasons I think the French Revolution was both a success and worth the price paid. Even though thousands of lives were lost, the France that exist now would not have existed if not for the historical events of the French Revolution.

1. What Was the Historical Background of the School?
Mercantilisms were a group of writers and thinkers who prevailed in Europe after the decline of feudalism in the early 15th century and the beginning of the Industrial revolution in 1780 (Mathur). The use of money expanded and trade increased within each country and between countries (Brue Grant 13). The focus was on the economic competition, they believed that politics must control economics. The Europeans explored and extended the sphere of commerce part due to the development of navigation (Brue Grant 13). The primary objective of the Mercantilism was to

The Maoist Movement in Contemporary India:
Opposing the neoliberal rhetoric of a shining middle-class India, the Communist Party of India (Maoist) has, since 2004, called for a New Democratic Revolution. Indian Maoists dismiss parliamentary democracy as a sham insofar as it fails to address the concerns and aspirations of the majority of its citizens, nearly four-fifths of who live below two dollars a day. In their party programme, Maoists characterize the postcolonial Indian state as Reactionary and autocratic and seek a „worker peasant alliance‟ to overthrow imperialism, Feudalism and comprador bureaucratic capitalism‟ via an armed revolutionary struggle.

The second matter students must resolve is the basis of measurement. Although this is referred to as the money measurement concept in Chapter 2, this case illustrates that a barter-equivalent measurement unit—here, bushels of wheat—could also be used as a common denominator to value unlike things; a monetary unit is simply easier to use in most instances.
Third, students must decide the basis of valuation. This issue arises most clearly in the case of the land, which is said to be “worth” five bushels of wheat per acre. At this early

A modern army, an efficient bureaucracy, a dynamic economy, the abolition of feudalism and serfdom could strengthen the autocratic monarchies of Europe. Conservative regimes set up in 1815 were autocratic. They did not tolerate criticism and dissent, and sought to curb activities that questioned the legitimacy of autocratic governments. Most of them imposed censorship laws to control what was said in newspapers, books, plays and songs and reflected the ideas of liberty and freedom associated with the revolution.

Diversification is a company strategy where a company’s goal is to increase profitability through increased sales volume from new products and new markets. It allows a company to venture out into new lines of business that are different from present operations. Companies choose to diversify for a host of different reasons. A major reason companies make the decision to diversify is to achieve synergy, making it possible for two or more parts of an organization to achieve greater total effectiveness or profitability than what would have been possible for a single entity.

Eliminating Physical Education
Physical education is required in every American high school. Physical education programs engage students in regular physical activity and help students acquire skills and habits necessary to pursue an active lifestyle. There is evidence showing that Physical education can promote better classroom learning by keeping kids more on task and improving concentration. Physical education not only provides physical activity that can help a child in the short-term, but it can also teach students the behavioral and movement skills that will help them be physically active later in life.

I. Dating Industry history
The dating industry formed in the 1600s when the first services to help singles found spouses arose. At the time, being unmarried past the age of 21 was shameful causing some to turn towards matrimonial agencies to help them find a mate. The services utilized print ads typically on behalf of men who paid the agency to recruit them a wife.

The theory of Vico in the 1700’s reorganized perception of mythology and his efforts to rationalize these “ideal histories” in an understandable fashion permanently changed the orientation of perception of the world regarding myths (Leonard & McClure). His personal life focus was to identify cultural iconic symbols and stories, preserve and organize them into an understandable format so as to make these ancient writings into an approachable and useable format for all of humanity. This important effort forever made myths accessible to the masses and by doing so, removed some of the built-in mystery and vagueness
