The Age of Exploration was a time of great expansion in the European Countries. From Africa, to North and South America, the Spanish, Dutch, English and French were all competing to find new trade routes, new commodities, and new areas to convert to their religion.

On the other hand, the Americas were discovered and had their original culture changed immensely.
Imperialism, the act of expanding the United States’ political and economical influence over the world, was one of the U.S.’s priorities during the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The United States had also began becoming overall different than they were before. Before the civil war had happened the U.S. had kept to themselves, not really participating in the outside affairs that were going on around them.

Hawaii, was an opportunity for the United States and many other countries to expand their trade with Asia.
The implementation of the Truman Doctrine not only affected 1940s America, it changed the scope of our national foreign policy. As reported by professor Dennis Merrill at the University of Missouri, “The administration 's concern over communism domino effect, its media-sensitive presentation of the doctrine, and its mobilization of U.S. economic and military power to modernize unstable regions, marked the advent of a modern U.S.
MINI REPORT ARE THE BENEFITS OF GLOBALISATION GREATER THAN THE DRAWBACKS? In my perspective, globalisation is a practice by which the world is becoming progressively connected as a result of immensely increased trade and cross culture diversity. Globalisation enhances the use of outsourcing and offshoring products. The biggest companies are now not only national firms but are replaced by multinational corporations with subsidiaries in many countries. Its outcomes in our lives, being intertwined with people in all parts of the world via the food, the dress code, the music, the information we get and the ideas we hold.
4.0 Implementation 4.1 Broader perspective Globalization is affected by various factors that drive towards its existence and formation in the society and a set of these macroeconomic factors. As per this analysis we can get an overview of the current economy of the country that helps the researcher to make relevant suggestions and recommendations that can benefit the economy as well as society to make them believe and trust that the globalization enhances their behaviour and life style.

Over the years there have been various manifestations that have been associated with African diaspora. e.g. Back-to-black, Pan Africanism, Black Nationalism, Afrocentricity. African diaspora played a big role in transformation and creations of new cultures, institutions, outside of Africa. As the migration of peoples and cultures across borders has accelerated, the growing interdisciplinary field of diaspora studies has provided a much needed study of the structural features that characterise these movements.
The first of these problems were the apparent dangers that the US was facing from the Soviet Union and their intent on the spread of Communism in the Third World, indicating that Moscow’s ambitions were more global than originally imagined (Doctrines, n.d., para. 3). Soviet intentions were quite clear because of their Communist influence in African, Asian, and Latin American countries. The Soviet forces had already occupied Afghanistan for over a year, Vietnamese troops were occupying Cambodia with Soviet help, and Cuban troops were in Angola with Soviet advisors. Second, is that tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union were intensifying and relations were decreasing as both super powers sought to be dominant over the
hroughout my lifetime, cultural forces have identified, characterized and grouped me according to my appearance, ethnicity, and my values. My communication and interaction with the larger society particularly a biracial student-athlete, allowed me to perform to these subjections and associations in distinct, but also unique ways in the formulation of my identity. An identity is “a process of recognition that takes place among a series of differences” through which cultural categories of “our specific identities are located and negotiated” (Nealon & Searls Giroux 51). The development of my identity has had a profound influence on the ways I am to act and ultimately live. Furthermore, the lessons and topics that I have learned in this class have
Before the colonization establishment on the Western hemisphere, the indigenous people lived there for a long time utilizing the rich resources of that land. However, when explorations were guided by leaders of the old world, colonization being to take place in different part of the new world. Each of the Spinach, French and English approached colonization and formed dominant empires on what is now known as the Americas. The empires initiated different relationships with the local people based on how the empire and its people interact with them. Additionally, massive changes took place on both of the new and old world that led to convulse each of the two Americas, Europe and Africa.
GLOBALIZATION, TECHNOLOGY AND LAW Globalization and Technology Globalization has completely transformed the way in which the world and its people interact. Earlier there were several roadblocks in the ability to communicate and interact with the people worldwide. But now, the world is becoming more and more globalized in all spheres: Business, financial, social, economical, etc. Over the years, a lot of technological advancements have come into picture including the changes in the field of Information Technology, having a significant impact on the global landscape. This evolution in Information Technology and the major innovations made in it is a major driving force behind globalization, which actually set the cart rolling.
Although Biggart would lean towards the institutional approach, I partially agree that Japan’s institutions allowed for its growth but this was not the case for Taiwan. They both utilized their markets but networks significantly helped Taiwan while institutions catalyzed Japanese
This idea most closely represents that of 17th century European imperialism but has shifted to meet 21st century ideals. Instead of vying for power through the use of colonies, the military uses strategies that enhance their political and economic agendas in any given area. One example of this agenda can be seen in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Created in 1949 this military alliance was formed to help combat the Soviet Union and communism. However after the fall of the Soviet Union, NATO evolved into an “instrument of imperialist expansion.” (Haiphong, Danny).
