The British Invasion marks a historical time in the world of music. Society was rapidly changing and means of what was “socially acceptable” played a huge part in music how we know it today. Starting in the 1060’s bands like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Animals were just the people to start a revolution of music in the United States. According to Kenneth Olwig, author of “The ‘British Invasion’: the ‘new’ cultural geography and beyond”, “It took a British group to teach American musicians about the vitality of American Rock and Roll as a contemporary, largely urban, phenomena” (Olwig 2010). This statement brings to attention the British attitude towards the situation.
Europe at the beginning of the 20th century saw the development of ‘mass society’; the continual developing industrial sprawl, mass housing, mass class bound fashions, mass political, mass production and new imperialism defined this period. Thus, concerns for the individual became forefront within society and subsequently saw the progress of human rights in the latter half of the century. European modernity can be defined as the development of the human rights movement, built upon these early 20th century concerns for the individual. European imperialism during the first half of the century, saw Western powers conquer Africa and parts of Asia, as trade became imperative for the growth of domestic economies. Through the development of policies
This gives immediacy to the relationship with “…play with mummy’s things” as America is now telling its neighbouring countries to experiment with its things. I have applied this metaphor to show an effect of how rapidly the world is changing because of consumerism as America is forming a basis to control its neighbouring countries with a flow of American goods imposed upon the other countries. As soon as the countries adapt to it, they stuck with it forever. This has explained consumerism fairly well as it represents the regulation of goods for a ‘better’ economy. Well that’s it from
The 18th century serves as a major turning point in the British Empire, forming the modern view of its territories and conquests. The birth of imperial Britain is truly complete with the conquering of the New World, mainly the Caribbean and North America, near the middle of the 17th century. It is this conquering of the Spanish empire and the subjugation of newly discovered people that finalizes the trending growth of Britain’s global empire, which created and fostered anxiety in the British people. The idea of nation-building defined a new role for Britain, which only fully incorporated Scotland in 1740, solidifying their place in the networks of global trade. It is through this development that for the first time, in the 18th century, large groups of people were not only able to identify as a nation in Britain, but also distinguish “otherness” through the subjugation of native peoples in newly discovered lands.
In lines 5-8, readers see a how women are restrained when it comes to speaking their minds when the author says, “They plainly can their thoughts disclose/Whilst ours must burn within/We have got tongues, and eyes, in vain/And truth from us is sin” (“A Lady’s Complaint”, 857). Men on the other hand are not held to such a standard, because they can freely say what they wish and be believed. Further on in this unknown woman’s complaint, in lines 9-12, she brings in the biggest example of the hypocrisy of the eighteenth century when she says, “Men to new joys and conquests fly/And yet no hazard run/Poor we are left, if we deny/And if we yield, undone” (“A Lady’s Complaint, 858). Men can go off and sleep with whomever they want without fear of repercussion, but women are not given the same luxury. If women went around sleeping with whoever they wanted to sleep with, they would be left poor and with a ruined reputation.
The Industrial Revolution brought change in the socioeconomics of western cultures. These changes, in turn, influenced families. Three major aspects of the industrial revolution have been cited by scholars of family history as having great influence on family life (Coontz, 1992; Hunt & Hunt, 1987; Lasch, 1983; Demos, 1986). First, the rise of market capitalism influenced which families had the opportunity to make money. Second, consumerism, that is, the desire/ability to attain to a higher standard of living, changed families ' motivation for earning money.

Traditional gender roles in today’s society are very different from what they once were. Shakespeare had progressive views on gender and gender roles in his time period, which he expressed through his writing. In MacBeth, Shakespeare showcases both his views and unusual roles through Macbeth and Lady MacBeth, MacDuff and the witches. Gender roles in the relationship of MacBeth and Lady MacBeth are probably the most obvious correlation between masculine traits expressed through female characters. Lady MacBeth belittles MacBeth and frequently challenges his manhood.
How the Industrial Revolution Caused the Utopian Society What is the Industrial Revolution? The industrial revolution began in the 1770’s in England. The Revolution consisted of the economy slowly developing and changing with the employers wanting more money and produce produced, which inspired new ideas. Machines started being invented, coal and oil soon began to power the machines, instead of humans, and working environments soon became safe. Britain began the revolution first, it then quickly spread to some of Europe, the U.S, the remaining parts of Europe, and then slowly to the “Asian Tigers” (Cite WCP).
They along with common enlightened thought influenced the role and view on education as a whole. In Europe during the 18th century, while traditional views on women changed, it was ultimately the perspective of education and children in European society that was more greatly transformed, which paved the way for the implementation of many Enlightened ideals throughout daily life, improving society as a whole. In this time major change took place across Europe. While this is so, this took place in mostly the upper class, while lower classes still remained poor, but
