I would like an introduction and 4 or 5 topic sentences (with a couple of key facts as bullet points for each paragraph)

  1. To what extent did economic interests govern the expansion of the British Empire during the years 1763-1914?
  2. How far was the adoption of free trade in 1842–46, the key factor in the growth of British global trade in the years 1763–1914?
  3. How far do you agree that the willingness to use force to expand British commerce was a key factor in British commercial success in the years 1763–1914?

Love him or loathe him, there is no doubt that Billy Graham influenced American politics.
