As previously stated, the Sui dynasty came to be after China was in a period of instability, thus the fact that it was able to be rejoined was a huge achievement for the empire. Sui Yangdi came to power, in 604, after his father’s death, while that much may be true; it is believed he “did so after assassinating his father (the Wendi emperor) and his elder brother” (Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica, britannica.com). While this may seem alarming, it is also worth to mention that Emperor Wendi came to power after he “killed about 60 of his brothers and relatives and made himself the emperor of his kingdom” (Wu chinahighlights.com).

The Battle of Lexington and Concord was the official turning point for the colonists, they had colonists prepared with guns, minutemen, that were ready to fight at a seconds notice and they kept close eyes on Boston just in case the British chose to attack. William Dawes and Paul Revere were keeping watch for any British movement. When the British came the colonists were ready and by the end of the battle the British had lost many of their troops in this revolutionary war. This war was definitely the beginning of the fight for independence for the colonists, thy showed the British that they could stand up for themselves and that they deserved better treatment.

Kevin Chen March 1st, 2018 Book Review: 1984 by George Orwell I. Summarize The political critical novel 1984 written by George Orwell portrays a hypothetical totalitarian society dominated by the Party (symbolized as Big Brother) after World War II where humanity (including both physical and psychological freedom) has been eliminated due to strict hierarchy levels in the nation of Oceania.

Slogans such as “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance

In addition, “[s]tarting from the spring of 1936, the Boss was proverbially born again, a new man” (Murakami 117). In comparison, just as the Boss was “born again”, the Emperor of Japan made a strong stand and united the cabinets after the failed coup d’etat which led to the government being “marginalized and the military controlling the Japanese Politics” (The 1930s and War
If you are completely clueless to the long story made short of the American Revolution, let me fill in the blanks. Basically, between 1765 and 1783 the original 13 colonies denied the British monarchy. It is between those 18 years that they fought back in many different ways against the British to win our independence. The thirteen colonies were getting heavily taxed by British monarchy without any representation. Seeing this as highly unfair, they took action and started to boycott merchandise from Britain.
Many states did not want to sign the articles due to their fear of another monarchical government. Because of that, the articles was created with a weak central government. This somewhat pleased the states however it took three years and a half for the Articles of Confederation to be ratified. Fear of another tyranny, “ The Articles of Confederation did not include a president,” The cruel and oppressive government had led the colonies to revolt against the long live monarchy, which explained why the articles did not propose a president. This new form of government crushed the idea of a government governed by a king.
The U.S. cut all ties with England because the king was a tyrant, not protecting the people’s rights and was ignoring their needs. Tyranny is too much power in the hands of a single person or group. The Articles of Confederation were created when they first broke away from England it was a government plan that backfired because the states had way too much power. A new Constitution was needed to make country and government stronger. 55 delegates from 12 states came to Philadelphia in 1887 to fix the Articles of Confederation but, they ended up forming a whole other Constitution.
In the chapter “Don’t Get Mad; Don’t Get Even; Get Ahead” Matthews discusses ways one cannot waste energy trying to get back at an enemy. It states how one should focus efforts on getting simply ahead of the enemy. The chapter cites the dilemma of former Speaker Newt Gingrich who attempted to shut down various government institutions after Bill Clinton forced him to exit Air Force One from the back. All this did was ruin Gingrich 's political spine. Others like Pat Sullivan, who helped Herbie win but did not receive help in return, tried to get even but fail in an eight year struggle.
In 1835, when the proposed reforms infuriated vested interests in the army and church, Santa Anna seized the opportunity to reassert his authority, and led a military coup against his own government. In 1836 Antonio Lopez De Santa Anna was captured by sam houston. Texas, using the chaos in Mexico as a pretext, declared independence in 1836.Although his failure to suppress the Texas revolution enormously discredited him, Santa Anna was able to reestablish much of his authority when he defeated a French invasion force at Vera Cruz in 1838. nevertheless, he remained the most powerful individual in Mexico until 1853, when his sale of millions of acres in what is now southern Arizona and New Mexico to the United States united liberal opposition against him. At the beginning of the Mexican War, Santa Anna entered into negotiations with President James K. Polk. He offered the possibility of a negotiated settlement to the United States and was permitted to enter Mexico through the American blockade.
