Great Britain

The official name of the country is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It is situated on the British Isles off the northwest coast of Europe. The British Isles consist of two large islands: Great Britain and Ireland, and about five thousand small islands. They are separated from the continent by the English Channel and the Straits of Dover. The west coast of the country is washed by the Atlantic Ocean and the Irish Sea; the east coast is washed by the North Sea.

The United Kingdom is made up of four countries: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Their capitals are London, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast respectively. The population of the country is over 57 million people.

The surface of the British Isles varies very much. The north of Scotland is mountainous and is called the Highlands, while the south, which has beautiful valleys and plains, is called the Lowlands. The north and the west of England are mountainous, but all the rest - east, centre and south-east - is a vast plain. The mountains are not very high. Ben Nevis in Scotland is the highest mountain (1343 m).

There are a lot of rivers in Great Britain, but they are not very long. The Severn is the longest river, while the Thames is the deepest and the most important one.

The climate of the British Isles is mild the whole year round. But it is not the same in all parts of England. The western part of England is warmer than the east and it also has more rain. England is well known as a foggy country.

The United Kingdom is a monarchy. The Queen is the official head of state. In practice the country is ruled by an elected parliament. The British Parliament has two chambers: the House of Lords and the House of Commons. There are three main political parties: the Labour, the Conservative and the Liberal.

The United Kingdom is a highly developed industrial country. It is known as one of the world's largest producers and exporters of machinery, electronics, textile, aircraft and navigation equipment.

The Civil War

In the 1850s, the USA was a country of very different regions. The north-east was its main industrial region. In the north-west, independent-minded farmers were increasing in number and in the south there was a system of plantation agriculture, in decline in some areas, but increasing where cotton was grown. The economies of these regions varied a great deal. The North's was based on wage labor, while the South's was based on slavery. Gradually, two separate social systems developed and tensions between the North and South began to grow.

In about the middle of the 19th century, politics in the USA started to change. New political parties appeared which appealed to the interests of one section of society but not the other. Then as the cities of the North became richer and more powerful, large numbers of people began to take part in politics. Throughout the country men began to take an interest in politics, as constitutional issues were debated around the nation.

One such issue was the Dred Scott case. Dred Scott was a slave who, in 1857, went to court to gain his freedom. The Supreme Court ruled that, as a black man, he had no rights, and he was forced to remain a slave.

There was an economic depression at the end of the 1850s, in which the South suffered worse than the North, and tensions and resentment continued. In 1860 the presidential election was won by Abraham Lincoln. He was a fierce Abolitionist - an opponent of slavery - for moral reasons, and the President that the Southern politicians disliked the most. They believed that his opinions and policies would bring about the economic ruin of the South.

Although the war did not actually break out until 1861, three events made it unavoidable. They were: the Dred Scott case, which heightened feelings against slavery; the economic depression, which increased mistrust between the North and South; and the election of President Lincoln, the last straw for the South. One year after his election, the South seceded from the union, and the Civil War began. Exercise 1: Answer the questions – Ответьте на вопросы:

1. What kind of country was the USA in the 1850s?

2. How did the economies of these regions vary?

3. Why did the politics in the USA start to change in the middle of the 19th century?

4. When did Abraham Lincoln win the presidential election?
