HW #40: Sugar, Silver and Slaves Reading
Study Guide

This is a lengthy reading so this study guide should assist in making it more manageable.
Complete your answers on separate pieces of paper. I will check to see that you have completed it
but will not be collecting it. (It will be a check grade—complete sentences and typing NOT
required.) You will be graded through an Inner-Outer Seminar. This study guide can serve as the
notes you take on the readings.

The BIG QUESTION we will be discussing is:
What is the inter-relationship between social inequity, violence and economic
development?
We will be looking primarily at the theme of social structure.
