1. Were the European revolutions of 1848 nationalist events? Give specific examples of different nations and try to articulate (possibly different) meanings of being “nationalist” in these case studies.

3. Was World War 1 the cause of the Russian Revolution, or can you trace the origin to a different point? Talk about specific contexts and events that triggered the Russian Revolution.

4. Did the fascist regime in Italy and the Nazi regime in Germany emerge from democratic processes? How can we understand “democracy” in that context? Did fascism and Nazism share a common trajectory of rising to power or were they different?
