When looking at society you need to consider the main factors
Think about what parts of society changed and what remained the same, continuity. The ability to evaluate society and measure what has changed and by how much is an important and high-level skill. Also look at society today and see how much is has changed or not at all, you’ll be fascinated by this activity. Lastly, see if you can find the foundations for the ‘modern’ state, how how governments became more or less interventionalist in their citizens lives.
