2012新gre逻辑阅读练习题9

  The historian Frederick J. Turner wrote in the 1890‘s
  that the agrarian discontent that had been developing
  steadily in the United States since about 1870 had been
  Line precipitated by the closing of the internal frontier--that is,
  5 the depletion of available new land needed for further
  expansion of the American farming system. Actually,
  however, new lands were taken up for farming in the
  United States throughout and beyond the nineteenth
  century. The emphasis of the presumed disappearance of
  10 the American frontier obscured the great importance
  of changes in the conditions and consequences of
  international trade that occurred during the second
  half of the nineteenth century. Huge tracts of land were
  being settled and farmed in Argentina, Australia, Canada, and in
  15 the American West, and these areas were joined with one
  another and with the countries of Europe into an interdependent
  market system. Consequently, agrarian depressions no longer
  were local or national in scope, and they struck
  several nations whose internal frontiers had
  20 not vanished or were not about to vanish. Between the
  early 1870‘s and the 1890‘s, the mounting agrarian discontent in
  America paralleled the almost uninterrupted decline in the
  prices of American agricultural products on foreign markets.
