History AS/A2 at Honiton Community College

Course description

You will be studying aspects of British and American History, and investigating the relationship between 'government' and 'people'. How did Britain become a world power? How have governments responded to popular demands for democracy? Has violent or peacful protest been more effective, and were wars apparently fought for freedom and emancipation, really concerned with the expansion of state power and control?
