I did Papers 18 and 9 (post-1890 European and 1450-1750 British socio-economic). I covered
Wilhelmine Germany and the German Revolution
WW1 and its origins
Weimar Republic and the rise of Hitler
Italy and Fascism
Nazism and the Third Reich
Spanish Civil War
Paper 18 is split into part A, which is cultural or economic, and part B, which is the interesting stuff. You have to answer 3 questions in total, and at least one from each part.
Paper 9 was really interesting in parts, and rather dull in others. I covered
The social order
Agriculture and Agrarian Society (yep, that's the dull bit)
Poverty and Poor Relief
Literacy and Education
I only did 7 topics as I did this paper in Easter Term of my first year and Easter is only a 7 week term.
Topics vary depending on your interests and your supervisors interests. Can you access any of the reading lists or exam papers on www.hist.cam.ac.uk?
If not, you'll be able to once you come up. Not long now!
