Refer to chapters 2-4 in your textbook for information regarding the ancient river valley civilizations.
Write a paper (1,250-1,500 words) in which you describe the results of a long-term economic surplus on a society. Using one ancient river valley civilization as an example, answer the following questions:
- How is a surplus created and sustained?
- Who controls the surplus?
- Who protects the surplus?
- How are those within the civilization who do not control or protect the surplus affected by it?
What happens and who is to blame if the surplus disappears?
