Please read the chapter. We're not going to have a quiz on it; it's too shapeless for that, and you've lived through a fair amount of it yourself.
Please also post in the forum for the day a short essay in response to this question:
For this last round of questions, we'd like for you to consider the current issues addressed in the last chapter in the context of the entire run of our World History course to date.
For this first session, broadly consider the range of resources we've discovered along the way. We live in a day with growing environmental concerns — climate, food, water — and an increasing sense of urgency to address them. We live in the midst of great abundance and at the same time are confronting appalling scarcity in some areas. How do we reconcile those things? How are our modern challenges like those that have always confronted people? How are they different from those that came before?
