Colonists carried diseases overseas that killed millions of non-Europeans. In India and Africa, colonial rule caused an increase in prevalent diseases. The modern transportation and communication links that enabled colonists to travel around the world, as their empire grew, could prove to be a double-sided sword. Not only could Europeans travel half way around the world, but when they travelled back, they brought new and deadly diseases with them. The most devastating example of this was the way that Cholera was brought back to Britain from the Indian sub-continent with devastating results.
History not only explains what happened in the past but reveals how humanity has transformed. Throughout centuries, there’s this identification where societies have all had a similar thought-process: “never having enough,” which led to migration, expansion, and mobilizing, one example of this is the age of exploration. In spite of this movement that led Europeans to a favorable position for abundance in new land, new resources, and capital; this was an adverse effect towards colored populations because it established systems of slavery, oppression, and inflicted inhumane treatment. Although the era of exploration was an advantage to multiple countries, it became catastrophe towards civilizations of color because Europeans ' bias created inequality that reflected when they communicated, when revolts occurred, and when offered assistance. These historical events led a distinction of white superiority towards the colored societies, in fact, it expresses through their communication with one another.
The environment condition was bad with smokes surrounding them. The release of harmful gases into the air from factories pollutes the world 's air, doing harm to the environment, further leading to global warming. Then, though it did boost many job opportunities, the living condition of the workers during the industrialization were poor. Company towns owned by business were rented out to employees. The owners forced them to live in isolated communities near workshops and forced them to buy goods with high interests.
The number of such events outnumbered 20 and the number of people killed was nearly 160 million. In the history of the 20th century with its Nazism, ethnic cleansing, deportations, clash of empires, wars in Yugoslavia and Post-Soviet territories, violence that touched upon even Africa and Asia – it is nationalism to be blamed to be the reason of all this cruelty that existed globally in the 1900s. However, does nationalism always lead to genocide? In this essay, I would try to give an answer to this question and prove my opinion that nationalism in practice frequently leads to genocide, analyzing theory and history of the twentieth century particularly. I would try to shortly explain how nationalism is understood by different sociologists and historians, what was naturally meant by nationalism and what it became in practice,
Relationships between Christianity, Islam, and Judaism were worsened, and the Pope lost a great deal of his power during the Crusades. European politics were shifted dramatically from feudalism to large towns and cities with bustling trade. Monarchs ruled the beginnings of modern European countries. People learned about other cultures and expanded their views of the world because of the effects of the Crusades. A large amount of crucial progress was made in medieval Europe as a result of the Crusades, and the battles fought over Jerusalem created ripples that still show in European countries to this
Today’s levels of biodiversity on Easter Island can be explained in terms of complexity and disturbance because the Easter Island population unknowingly overexploited their island’s natural resources because they were isolated from other islands. 6. I believe that Diamond’s comparison of the civilization on Easter Island with the entire planet is justified because we are aware of the damage we are creating on Earth, while the population of Easter Island had no idea that they were overexploiting Earth’s natural resources. 7. The past civilization on Easter Islands, symbolize today’s human population on Earth because we are also destroying Earth’s recourses through overpopulation and overexploitation.
The transition from Medieval Europe to the Renaissance and beyond was not easy. Death and loss of power were the results of events such as the Black Death, the downfall in economy was also involved, but in the end it resulted in the discovery of new things. You can relate all of these changes to a modern event, known as the Zika virus. The Zika virus, which has recently invaded the United States, is a disease which has many of the same characteristics as the Black Death. When the population changes, government adjustments are often a result.
In chapter 15, “Self-Help in Hard Times”, Zinn’s overarching point is that unity among workers was not simple to achieve, and that white supremacy was a powerful, deadly force after the war. To support and further discuss these concepts, Zinn points out how relations between the American Federation of Labor and the Industrial Workers of the World were often tense, how city life often changed drastically during times of strike, and how immigration laws during the twenties began to favor Anglo-Saxons. One such way Zinn showcases these ideas is by describing how drastically life changed for cities when workers went on strike, hoping for an increase in their wages. As the strike continued on throughout February of 1919, Zinn recalls how all services, except for those that were consider essential to daily life, ceased. This was most likely due to the fact that when the shipyard workers decided they must go on strike in order to be heard, they did not wish to make the lives of other working men and women like themselves any harder than they needed to be, so they set up ways that services such as the fire department continued running.
Even though it has been over sixty years since Myanmar was imperialized, remnants of the outcome of imperialism can still be well observed. The language, the clothing, the infrastructures all have been affected by imperialism. These effects may deceive people into thinking that imperialism was all sunshine and rainbows but in reality, imperialism brutally destroyed the different aspects of a country. Imperialism impacted societies in countless negative ways. It led to slave trade which then led to social discrimination around the world.
World War Two Ending The Great Depression In a time, when The Progressive Movement had created hundreds of different reform movements with progressive ideals and when World War Two ended with an American victory in Europe and in The Pacific. It is in this context that the Great Depression had completely devastated the American Economy. Three significant ways World War Two brought The United States out of the Great Depression were the massive amount of wartime production, and influx of new types of workers. Admittedly, one significant cause that brought The United States out of the Great Depression was the New Deal (A). The New Deal brought The Great Depression to an end because the government used deficit spending and created jobs for the desperate
All of them went to America with hope, however, Europeans’ migration interfered with Indians seriously. And also the lives of Europeans were affected. For Indians and Europeans, the hurt they got fur more than the benefits they got in America. Therefore, America should be view as a nightmare for both Europeans and Indians because diseases and frequent wars made them suffering in America. Although the Columbian exchange made both Indians and Europeans got some benefits, exchange of diseases
Another result of the end of the war was the Depression of 1873, which raised the unemployment rate to 15% and created greater tensions among the working class in the United States. The economically flourishing South transformed into an economically struggling area, while the North suffered as a result of the collapse of the banks. The Civil War and Reconstruction brought about many economic struggles to the United States and transformed the status of the South. The Civil War indisputably transformed the United States politically, socially, and economically. The 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments sparked most of these changes in addition to the reunification of the Confederate states.
BPQ#1- In the first half of the twentieth century, the disasters that befell Europe were related to the increased competition between the European states. These divisions have been a “long-standing feature of European political life” (982). This widespread competition lead to the rival alliances, which were “the Triple Alliance of Germany, Italy, and the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Triple Entente of Russia, France, and Britain” (983). These alliances, in conjunction with increasing nationalism, lead to the start of the First World War. The Great Depression also had a large impact on Europe, as this economic crisis increased instability within all social classes.
The resulting debt of more than $2 billion would fundamentally change the nature of our post-war economy. To pay off our debt, the Canadian government must now may over $164 million per year. This debt that was collected due to this excessive war is the cause for our current establishment of income tax and other extra fees. Although World War 1 did bring some positive change to Canada, it also had much negative impact on our nation, our people, and our future. It caused massive human casualties, damaged our soldiers, destroyed the Halifax harbour, established conscription, and has caused Canada to accumulate huge amounts of debt.
The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries saw a transition of Western Europe, when a series of inspiring historical events took place, such as the Renaissance, the Reformation, the Scientific Revolution, the discovery of new world, and the emergence of nation-state. However, what existed in the same period were social impoverishment caused by economic development, political chaos caused by the rise of nation-state, and the religious conflict caused by the Reformation. The life of civilians was pushed to edge by the infertility of land and famine because of the climatic change. People believed that these disasters were the sabotage of devil and his servants, who used thunder, hail, frost, storm, flood, plague, pests to impair the will of God and brought
