INTRODUCTION In the Monroe Doctrine: Empire and Nation in Nineteenth-Century America, Jay Sexton looked at an important piece of work written by James Monroe, which still plays an important role on American Diplomacy even unto the 20th Century. The major message of the Monroe doctrine shows United States’ insecurities and their passion. It shows their doubt of Great Britain and feared to be recolonized by that great nation, and the expansionist of United States’ ambition in having political independence through the unity of the nation. This doctrine reflects how foreign affairs could affect a nation greatly through internal conflicts and externally threats from greater nations. SUMMARY The Monroe Doctrine represents the mindset of the Americans
In fact, Aurangzeb was one of the last Mughal emperors and after his rule, India was taken over by Great Britain who took advantage of the turmoil and divisions that existed because of the lack of unity and religious tolerance that had existed under the rule of Akbar. King Akbar shows us that when religious tolerance is practiced, empires flourish and its people remain united, and when it ceases to exist, conflict increases, causing societies to fall into decline and empires to
Imperialism and its associated policies are fundamentally the reason for the novels plot; Britain’s imperialistic views led them to colonize and corrupt Sri Lanka, eventually causing an atrocious civil war setting the stage for Anil’s Ghost. Civil War is what we may brand the deadly warfare, fighting and state of unrest going on in Sri Lanka, again setting the stage of the novel. Change is in essence the controlling theme and idea; whether it is societal or personal change, it is the idea of change or corruption that is reflected through colonialism, the civil war and its impacts on Sarath, Anil, and Gamini.

For example, 94% of government positions were held by Englishman (Doc. #2).

Indeed, in many states British imperialism took place under the form of ‘hybrid colonialism’ which consisted of a combination of both direct and indirect rule. The most notable example of this rule was under colonial India where the vastness of territories as well as the high population of the country first led the British to a form of indirect rule headed by the British East Indian Company prior to 1857.

Types of colonialism varied in time and the British Empire did not hesitate to switch colonial practices to direct rule when local leaders resisted colonial rule as it was the case in 1857 in India. However, due to the very large number of states which composed India, types of colonial rule also varied geographically within the country.

The external resistance stemmed from south Africa’s growing international isolation and decreasing economic supports due to apartheid which would result to the end of racial segregation and discrimination, this all began with the anti-apartheid movement in the 1960s which was born out of the boycotts in april1960, after the Sharpeville genocide on 21 March the ANC was banned which now meant all paths of peaceful disagreement to apartheid inside South Africa were unnavigable.
