22 Questions 25 and 26 are based on the following passage. Albeit we have at all times borne with that which we could not amend in this book [the Anglican Book of Common Prayer]...yetwe must needs say as followeth, that this book is an unperfect book, culled and picked out of that popish dunghill, the Mass book full of all abominations. For...manyofthe contents therein be such as are against the word of God [the Bible], as by His grace shall be proved unto you...by the word of God, [ministry] is an office of preaching, yet they [the Anglicans] make it an office of reading. In the Scriptures there is attributed unto the minister of God the knowledge of the heavenly mysteries, and therefore as the greatest token of God s love they are enjoined to feed God s lambs, and yet with these [Anglican clergymen], such as are admitted and accepted...are only mere readers [of the Book of Common Prayer] that are able to say service and minister a sacrament. And that this is not the feeding that Christ spake of, the scriptures are plain... These are empty feeders... [and] messengers that cannot call.

23 Questions refer to the passage below. Historians had imposed on the Old Regime a [model] drawn from a later age, one that did not fit that earlier epoch. They had looked into the mirror of their own age rather than into the past, and they had seen Rockefeller and Lenin rather than the real Necker and Voltaire, thus misreading the whole code... When historians construed the Parisian sans-culottes of the Revolution as an incipient proletariat they also mistook reality by importing later ideas... [Furthermore, in contradiction to those arguing for the intellectual origins of the Revolution] no direct connection between Enlightenment ideas and French Revolutionary events has ever been demonstrated. Some points that emerge are that the word revolution was not in the philosophe vocabulary; they neither expected nor welcomed the Revolution that came. An affair more of the nobility than the commoners, philosophe thought did not call into serious question the existing social order and preferred to work through the monarchy. Roland Stromberg, historian, Reevaluating the French Revolution, Historians disagreeing with Stromberg and making the argument that the French Revolution was based on Enlightenment values would most likely cite which of the following as evidence in support of their position? (A) The suppression of the counterrevolutionary peasant revolts in the Vendée region of France (B) The Concordat of 1801 between the French government and the Roman Catholic Church (C) The French attempts to suppress the revolt in the colony of Saint Domingue (D) The issuing of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen 29. A Marxist historian arguing against the contention regarding the sans-culottes in the first paragraph would likely cite which of the following as evidence? (A) The sans-culottes identity as rooted in their socioeconomic status (B) The sans-culottes involvement in the storming of the Bastille (C) The sans-culottes attacks on the foreign mercenaries employed by Louis XVI (D) The sans-culottes support for a popularly elected democratic government 28. In the first paragraph, Stromberg most clearly criticizes which of the following historical interpretations of the French Revolution? (A) The French Revolution was primarily motivated by cultural nationalism. (B) The French Revolution was an example of class conflict. (C) The French Revolution was an example of Social Darwinist concepts of struggle. (D) The French Revolution was primarily motivated by short-term fiscal crises GO ON TO THE NEXT PAGE.

Blush, and break those symbols of disgrace, spurn them with becoming indignation, rise in a moment, and while we assist you with motives of the purest philanthropy and zeal for the happiness of all nations, fall on these despots, expel them from the country, and restore yourselves, your wives and your children to the inheritance of your fathers, whose spirits from the grave will lead on your ranks, inspire you with fury, and help you to be avenged.

William Grenville, British politician, speech to Parliament, The content and tone of Hugues proclamation (Source 1) correspond most closely with which of the following?

29 Questions refer to the passage below. In casting a preliminary glance over the vast field of female paid labor in this country, a field which may be roughly calculated to embrace about three millions of women, or half its female population, I am well assured that one department will chiefly interest a majority of my readers; namely the Profession of the Teacher. And this for an obvious reason, that it was until lately almost the only profession open to an educated woman of average ability. Few realize the extent to which women of the lower classes are employed in undomestic labor, in the factory, the workshop, and the field; but while all my lady readers have received instruction from some class of governess, there is probably not one who has not also some relative or cherished friend either actually engaged in teaching, or having formerly been so engaged... Indeed, it is not a question of rank at all, for the unmarried female members of the small merchant s family enter the profession from natural necessity, and the fortuneless daughters of the highly connected clergyman have often no other recourse. It is a platform on which middle and upper classes meet the one struggling up, the other drifting down. If a father dies, or a bank breaks, or a husband is killed, if brothers require a college education, or orphan nephews and nieces are cast helpless on a woman s heart, here is the one means of breadwinning to which access alone seems open. The English Women s Journal, The Profession of the Teacher, First issue, March 1, Which of the following best explains the movement of women into the teaching profession in the nineteenth century? (A) The increasing professionalization of nonindustrial jobs pushed men away from teaching positions. (B) The education of children in schools was increasingly seen as a respectable occupation for women. (C) The teaching profession was becoming increasingly open to working-class women. (D) The use of domestic paid labor declined over the course of the century. 37. A historian would most likely use the passage as evidence for which of the following in the nineteenth century? (A) The level of women s consumer spending (B) The economic conditions of educated middle- and upper-class women (C) Government policies regarding gender roles (D) The participation of women in radical political movements 38. The career possibilities for educated women changed the most during which of the following periods? (A) The Second Industrial Revolution (B) The First World War (C) The Interwar period (D) The post-second World War period -24- GO ON TO THE NEXT PAGE.
30 Questions refer to the passage below. My earliest memories are the standard postwar memories in London. Landscapes of rubble, half a street s disappeared. Some of it stayed like that for ten years. The main effect of the war on me was just that phrase, Before the War. Because you d hear grown-ups talking about it. Oh, it wasn t like this before the war. Otherwise I wasn t particularly affected. I suppose no sugar, no sweets and candies, was a good thing, but I wasn t happy about it... Thefact that I couldn t buy a bag of sweets until 1954 says a lot about the upheavals and changes that last for so many years after a war. The war had been over for nine years before I could actually, if I had the money, go and say, I ll have a bag of them toffees and Aniseed Twists. Otherwise it was You got your ration stamp book?

(A) Harsh loan conditions imposed on Great Britain by the United States (B) The arms race resulting from the beginning of the Cold War (C) The lingering impact of the Great Depression (D) Britain s commitment to full mobilization during the Second World War 41.

33 Questions refer to the following passage. It is hard to define the type of relationship that prevails between people in [communist countries] otherwise than as acting, with the exception that one does not perform on a theater stage but in the street, office, factory, meeting hall, or even the room one lives in. Such acting is a highly developed craft that places a premium upon mental alertness. Before it leaves the lips, every word must be evaluated as to its consequences. A smile that appears at the wrong moment, a glance that is not all it should be, can occasion dangerous suspicions and accusations. A visitor from [Eastern Europe] is shocked on coming to the West. In his contacts with others, beginning with porters or taxi drivers, he encounters no resistance. The people he meets are completely relaxed. They lack that internal concentration which betrays itself in a lowered head or in restlessly moving eyes. They say whatever words come to their tongues; they laugh aloud. Is it possible that human relations can be so direct? [In Eastern Europe], acting in daily life differs from acting in the theater in that everyone plays to everyone else, and everyone is fully aware that this is so... After long acquaintance with his role, a man grows into it so closely that he can no longer differentiate his true self from the self he simulates, so that even the most intimate of individuals speak to each other in Party slogans. Czeslaw Milosz, Polish writer, The Captive Mind, In the passage, Milosz is reacting most directly to which of the following aspects of life in communist Eastern Europe? (A) The collectivization of land and the nationalization of the means of production (B) Communist control over the visual and performing arts (C) The economic and military dependence on the Soviet Union (D) The oppressive political system and pervasive internal surveillance 47. Which of the following accurately compares Milosz s perspective in the passage with the ideas of European existentialism? (A) Both Milosz and the existentialists were sharply critical of communist society and the suffering communist policies had inflicted on the peoples of the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. (B) Milosz was interested in the question of why individuals act in the way that they do, but existentialists did not share that interest. (C) In contrast to the existentialists, Milosz followed a Marxist materialist model in explaining human behavior and class conflict, but he shared the existentialists skepticism of the idea of constant progress. (D) Like the existentialists, Milosz was interested in the alienation of the individual in the face of absurd social circumstances, but he did not share existentialists critical attitude toward Western society GO ON TO THE NEXT PAGE.
34 48. Which of the following later events would most directly challenge Milosz s assessment in the third paragraph of the impact of living under communism on the human psyche? (A) The declaration of martial law by the communist regime in Poland in 1981 (B) The limited extent of the de-stalinization program launched by Nikita Khrushchev in 1956 (C) The failure of the 1968 Prague Spring protests against communist rule in Czechoslovakia (D) The high levels of popular support for the anticommunist revolutions in All of the following statements about Milosz are factually correct. Which one would be most useful in identifying the intended audience of The Captive Mind? (A) Milosz was born in present-day Lithuania and throughout his life professed to have a dual identity as both a Lithuanian and a Pole. (B) Milosz worked as a diplomat for the Communist government of postwar Poland between 1946 and (C) Milosz defected to the West in 1951 and obtained political asylum in France. (D) Milosz emigrated to the United States in 1960 and became a professor at the University of California, Berkeley GO ON TO THE NEXT PAGE.

Use the passage below to answer all parts of the question that follows. The best way to assess the depth and scope of the Scientific Revolution is to compare and contrast the science that came into fruition in the seventeenth century with its nearest equivalent in the late Middle Ages... Traditionally, knowledge had been based on faith and insight, on reason and revelation. The new science discarded all of these as ways of understanding nature and set up experience experiment and critical observation as the foundation and ultimate test of knowledge. The consequences were as revolutionary as the doctrine itself. For not only did the new method found knowledge on a wholly new basis, but it implied that men and women no longer had to believe what was said by eminent authorities; they could put any statement to the test of controlled experience. I.

It would be better [if] on the Lord s Day he gave some accounting of himself and, instead of reckoning his profits, reckoned up his sins.

43 Document 2 Source: Wilhelm Liebknecht, German socialist, political speech, 1869 Is it the duty of the Socialists to send delegates to the Reichstag [German parliament] at all? Our Social-Democratic Party (SPD)* must not, under any circumstances, or in any field, engage in transactions with its opponents. We can only transact business where there is a common basis. To do business with those who are your opponents in principle is equivalent to a sacrifice of principle... The slightest concession in matters of principle is a relinquishing of the principle entirely. He who parliamentarizes, compromises. Suppose a candidate comes up for election and the government is absolutely opposed to having him in the Reichstag. The government will confiscate the newspapers that advocate his election it will do so legally; it will confiscate his election handbills also legally; or it will give permits for meetings of electors and then dissolve them again legally; it will arrest the candidate s campaign managers quite legally; it will arrest the candidate himself also legally. They recently arrested a delegate to the Reichstag, and that delegate would still be in prison right now if the National Liberals** had not been convinced by Bismarck of his harmlessness. There is no possibility of our having an influence on legislation. Tell me, in heaven s name, what would be the use of a presentation of our principles in the Reichstag? Do you think you would convert the members of the Reichstag? The idea is more than childish; it is infantile. *the largest socialist party in Germany **one of the main parties supporting Bismarck s government at the time Document 3 Source: Hermann Wagener, high public official and conservative politician, memorandum written for Otto von Bismarck, Why the Government Cannot Ignore the Social Question: A Conservative View, 1872 It is extremely dangerous to take up the battle against the ultramontane [extremely Catholic] and socialist parties simultaneously. It is important to keep those pursuing anti-national aims away from the social movement but it would be a political mistake to subject socialist leaders to emergency laws on account of their social advocacy, particularly without also doing something substantial to satisfy the just efforts of their followers. It would be hopeless to fight a powerful idea merely with material means, and, with respect to the extremely powerful Catholic-clerical idea, there is currently only one idea that can be used as a political counterweight with any prospect of success and that is the social idea. The social Kaiser has a stronger position than even the social Pope. At the moment, the mass of the population is wavering, unsure of the direction in which to turn. So far, the international agitation has not gained a broader basis; where the masses turn, however, will be of crucial significance not just for politics but also for the character of the army. The army will only be completely reliable if the workers, who make up its main contingent, are won over and bound to the idea of the Reich through its very benefits and performance. -8- GO ON TO THE NEXT PAGE.
