1. Thatcherism
The election of 1979 returned the Conservative Party to power and Margaret Thatcher became the first woman prime minister in Britain. Her policies are popularly referred to as Thatcherism. It included the return to private ownership of state - owned industries, the use of monetarist policies to control inflation, the weakening of trade unions, the strengthening of the role of market forces in the economy, and an emphasis on law and order.
2. diversity of American education
Diversity is considered to be an outstanding characteristic of American education. This can be seen not only in type, size and control of the institutions, but educational policies and practices. As is stated by the Tenth Amendment33 to the United States Constitution, education is a function of the state, not the federal govemment. As each state has the freedom to develop its own school system and delegates its power over education to local districts, many variations can be found in the education system of the 50 states.
3. the Canadian Shield
The Canadian Shield is a semicircular band of rocky highlands and plateaus around Hudson Bay from the northern shores of Quebec to the Arctic shores of the Northwest Territories. It is a region of rounded hills, and tens of thousands of lakes and swamps.
4. Australia's service industries
Service industries are also called "tertiary industy". This sector34 now includes an additional "quaternary" level, which covers the research, processing and storage of information. Australia's service sector is the fastestgrowing one. It has been growing in importance, due to higher living standards and greater demand for more and better transport and housing, and the expansion by government of educational, health and welfare services.
5. the New Deal
In order to deal with the Depression, President Franklin Roosevelt put forward the New Deal program. It passed a lot of New Deal laws and set up many efficient social security systems. The New Deal helped to save American democracy and the development of American economy.

1. Look at a physical map of the United States and find out and name the main monition ranges, rivers and lakes in the United States.
There are two main mountain ranges in the United States. They are the Appalachian Mountains and the Rocky Mountains. There are many important rivers in the United States. The Mississippi River and its two branches, the Missouri River and the Ohio River, flow south to the Gulf35 of Mexico. On the Pacific side there are two great rivers: the Colorado River and the Columbia River. The Rio Grande River forms a natural boundary between Mexico and the United States. Other well known rivers include the Hudson River which meets the Atlantic Ocean at New Yurk and the Potomac boarding the national capital of Washington. The most important lakes in the United States are the Great Lakes. They are Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. They are all located between Canada and the United States except Lade Michigan.
2. How many constituencies are there in Britain today?
How many members are there in the House of Commons?
To hold general elections, Britain is divided into 651 constituencies, each of which returns one member to the House of Commons. There are 651 members in the House of Commnos.
3. What were the effects of European settlement on the Aborigines?
White settlement in 1788 proved disastrous36 for the Aborigines. (1) Aboriginal37 culture and society were totally disrupted because of a total conflict of cultures. (2) The loss o land to white people led to the breakdown38 of their tribal39 life because Aboriginal culture was based on the land. (3) After losing their land, Aborigines became dependent on white handouts40. They copied the European habit of drinking alcohol, which destroyed large numbers of Aborigines. (4) The whites also brought many diseases which the Aborigines had no resistance to. (5) All these, combined with the violence between Europeans and Aborigines resulted in the drastically reduction in Aboriginal population. The Aborigines have always been in unfavorable position ever since 1788. The Aborigines still face legal, political, economic and social discrimination today.
4. Sinn Fein
Sinn Fein was the Irish guerrilla movement that wrested41 independence from the British in 1921. It spit in 1921 over the Anglo - Irish Treaty and became two parties, Fianna Fail and Fine Gael, which remains42 to be the two major political parties in Ireland today.

1. Tell briefly the history of the two - party system in the United States. What are the characteristics of the two major parties in the United States today?
There nave43 been four periods in the history of the two - party system in the United States.
(1) During the Ratification44 period, the first two major parties appeared. They were the Federalists and the Anti - Federalists. After the adoption45 of the Bill of Rights, the Anti - Federalists began to call themselves Democratic - Republicans. The Federalists gradually disintegrated46. (2) After the 1828 election of Andrew Jackson, the Democratic - Republican Party split. The main faction47 led by Jackson was called the Whig Party which formed in 1834. As the struggle over slavery intensified48, the majority of the Whig Party, part of the democrats49, and other anti - slavery elements formed the Republican Party in 1854. (3) From 1860s to 1920s, the Republican Party dominated the political scene. (4) From the time of President Franklin Roosevelt to the 1980s, the Democratic Party was dominant50, with short interruptions.
Traditionally, the Democrats support government intervention51 in the economy and a strong social security system. While the Republicans stress the role of the market more and oppose large government social security programs. But the two parties are not really very different. They both believe in individualism, defend capitalism52 and uphold private ownership of means of production. Their organizations are both very loose. But they are both very significant in political life.
