Read Chapters 3-4 and the information provided regarding the 1763 Treaty of Paris, which ended the Seven Year’s War. Once all reading is complete, respond to the following items:
- What concessions are forced upon France by England, the victor, and what does England give in return?
- How significant a role do New World possessions seem to play in the treaty?
- What does this document suggest about the European balance of power and the economic philosophy of mercantilism?
You are required to submit an initial posting that addresses the items above. You are also expected to respond to the posting of at least one other student. Your response should address why you agree/disagree with their posting.
Minimum word counts for this assignment are as follows: Initial Post = 200 words; Peer Response = 100 words. These are minimum word counts–you can write more. Be aware that only your answers count to the word counts (retyping questions into your post does not count toward the word count).
Be sure that you fully address the questions, providing detailed analysis and historical context. Do not cut-and-paste from sources, but instead use your own words to answer in both the initial post and peer response.
