   5,000-year history of agriculture in the Nile Valley
   and delta of Egypt depended on the annual Nile
   River flood that left a veneer of new silt over the
   valley floor each year. Modern dams on the Nile
   — particularly the Aswan High Dam, which can
   store the entire annual flood — have destroyed
   the natural system of fertilization, necessitating
   huge imports of artificial fertilizers.…

   Arcis, and the count of Grandpré. If it should
   happen that the count of Grandpré should be at

   Champagne on behalf of his friends and not in his
   own quarrel, I will aid in my own person the
   countess and count of Champagne, and will send

   of him, but I will not go myself into the territory
   of the count of Grandpré to make war on him.…

Document 2
    In this excerpt, William H. McNeill discusses the interpretation of historical evidence to explain how the
plague was spread. He suggests that available evidence makes it unlikely that the plague was found in China
before 1331.
       …By contrast, after 1331, and more particularly after 1353, China entered upon a disastrous
       period of its history. Plague coincided with civil war as a native Chinese reaction against the
       Mongol domination gathered headway, climaxing in the overthrow of the alien rulers and the
       establishment of a new Ming Dynasty in 1368. The combination of war and pestilence [disease]
       wreaked havoc on China’s population. The best estimates show a decrease from 123 million [in]
       about 1200 (before the Mongol invasions began) to a mere 65 million in 1393, a generation after
       the final expulsion of the Mongols from China. Even Mongol ferocity cannot account for such a
       drastic decrease. Disease assuredly played a big part in cutting Chinese numbers in half; and
       bubonic plague, recurring after its initial ravages at relatively frequent intervals, just as in
       Europe, is by all odds the most likely candidate for such a role.…

                        Social and Economic Effects of the Plague in Europe
      The plague had large scale social and economic effects, many of which are recorded in the
      introduction of the Decameron. People abandoned their friends and family, fled cities, and shut
      themselves off from the world. Funeral rites became perfunctory [superficial] or stopped
      altogether, and work ceased being done. Some felt that the wrath of God was descending upon
      man, and so fought the plague with prayer. Some felt that they should obey the maxim [saying],
      “Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow you may die.” The society experienced an upheaval to
      an extent usually only seen in controlled circumstances such as carnival [festival]. Faith in
      religion decreased after the plague, both because of the death of so many of the clergy and
      because of the failure of prayer to prevent sickness and death.…

       …The Chinese had long been opposed to the opium trade. The drug had been introduced
       into China by Dutch traders during the seventeenth century. As early as 1729, there were
       imperial decrees forbidding the sale and smoking of this “destructive and ensnaring vice.” In
       1796, Jiaqing, the new emperor, placed a complete ban on its importation, but he was a weak
       administrator and soon pirates and opium merchants were bribing officials to look the other
       way. By 1816, the [British] East India Company had imported 3,000 chests of opium from its
       poppy fields in the north Indian state of Punjab. By 1820, this had risen to 5,000 and by 1825
       to almost 10,000.
           As more and more Chinese became addicts, and silver flowed out of the economy to
       British coffers, the Chinese government moved toward confrontation. The emperor
       Daoguang, who came to the throne in 1821 was a reformer, and, supported by his advisor Lin
       Zexu (1785–1850), the emperor banned opium in 1836 and ordered the decapitation of
       “foreign barbarians” who concealed and traded the drug.…

       It being obviously necessary and desirable, that British Subjects should have some Port

    This is an excerpt of the testimony given by Gavrilo Princip reprinted in The Sarajevo Trial. He was accused
of assassinating Archduke Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary and his wife in July 1914.
                                        The Hearing of Gavrilo Princip
                                              12 October 1914
                                              In the Afternoon
         …Pr. [Prosecutor]: — Call Gavrilo Princip. (He is brought in.) Do you consider yourself
              guilty?
         Acc. [Accused, Gavrilo Princip]: — I am not a criminal, because I destroyed that which was
              evil. I think that I am good.…
         Pr.: — What kind of ideas did you have?
         Acc.: — I am a Yugoslav nationalist and I believe in the unification of all South Slavs in
              whatever form of state and that it be free of Austria.
         Pr.: — That was your aspiration. How did you think to realize [accomplish] it?
         Acc.: — By means of terror.
         Pr.: — What does that signify?
         Acc.: — That means in general to destroy from above, to do away with those who obstruct and
              do evil, who stand in the way of the idea of unification.
         Pr.: — How did you think that you might realize your objectives?
         Acc.: — Still another principal motive was revenge for all torments which Austria imposed
              upon the people.…
         Pr.: — What was the feeling about Austria in your circles?
         Acc.: — It was the opinion that Austria behaved badly to our people, which is true, and
              certainly that she (Austria) is not necessary.…

                    • Describe the historical circumstances surrounding this turning point
                    • Discuss changes that occurred within a society and/or region as a result of this
