Unit III D: People and Power, Germany, 1918-39
This unit looks at Germany at the end of WW1, the democracy established in the 1920s through to the rise of the Nazi Party in the 1930s.
Unit I B: Changing Life in Scotland and Britain, 1830s-1930s
This unit looks at the changing nature of the economy, society and politics within Scotland and Britain during the course of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Topics covered are: Population, Democracy, Coal Mining, Railways, Agriculture, Health and Housing.
