Due to competitive state system, the Europeans competed with each other and this is how the Industrialization revolution came into being as well; to compete with each other. Many problems arose which ended up being the cause of Europe’s rise to end, such as most of the wars were caused by the state systems. The huge Battle of Nations Memorial, which begun in 1871, after
At the dawn of the twentieth century, Russia was in a political crisis. The abolishment of serfdom in 1861 and the Industrial Revolution of the 1880s created an exodus from farms to cities as the former serfs sought employment in factories. With no representation for the workers, factories were unsafe and workdays long. Those who remained in the rural areas, found the liberation from serfdom to be anything but free as they struggled to pay for land that barely supported their existence. By the early 1900s, the proletariat, or working class, began to call for better wages and improved working conditions.
In this essay, I will analyze to what extent was Germany responsible for the outbreak of World War 2. German nationalism was one of the major causes which led to the Second World War. Nationalism in Germany increased after 1871. It continued to grow and in early 1930’s was frequently used by Hitler to gain support. Many people in Germany resented the Treaty of Versailles, as it signified German weakness and had very hard criteria which made it a huge burden on Germany’s shoulders.
The industrial revolution created an age of wonder for the rich but also created a nightmare for the workers powering the industrial revolution. The period of rapid industrial growth during the 1800s and into the early 1900s was more harmful because of poor working conditions, violent labor disputes and poor regulations at factories. The businessmen of the industrial revolution created poor working conditions for men and women just
The way in which the colonies made enough money to support England was based off as the geography of the land and how conducive the use of agriculture and cash-crops would be. The different climates of the New England and Chesapeake created different economies for each. In New England, the economy was based on shipbuilding and fishing because of long winters and the rocky soil that was not fertile. New England colonies, founded by primarily large families, only had small family farms as a result of the climate and turned to trade and industry rather than agriculture. The lack of need for farming for the economy led to the abolishment of slavery, as it was seen as unnecessary based off the economy.
The Industrial Revolution brought down the prices of crops produced by farmers, this meant that farmers were not making enough money to pay off their debts. This increasing problem was slowly digging farmers into a hole with what seemed to be no escape. To add on to their everlasting money problems, middlemen and railroad companies were price gouging the farmers. This meant, the companies were asking farmers to pay prices which had been far higher than the actual value of the products needed for the farmers to raise crops. Companies did this, because they knew that farmers could not buy their goods from other businesses due to the fact that there were not any others in sight.
While agriculture prices fell, unemployment of farmers followed. Industrial production, agriculture, commerce, currency, production, and distribution were all impacts of Germany’s economy to fail. The Great Depression was so significant in so many ways. Popularity in the extremist parties increased, the number of unemployed Germans increased, major banks closed, theft was becoming worse, factories began to produce less and less, the German population was shortening by the minute, the Weimar Republic failed, trade was down and many other reasons. The list of reasons why the Great Depression impacted Germany goes on and on.
However, due to the excessive interest rates proposed by banks and merchants, this resulted in several farmers lacking the sufficient amount of money in order to pay their bank the loans they borrowed. Additionally, railroad companies demanded high freight rates from farmers who wished to ship their products and the government raised policies which declined the amount of money supplied to the agricultural industry. Therefore, as a solution to their extensive misfortune, several farmers in the South created the Farmers Alliance, in the late 1870’s, this was the main precedent for the People 's Party. The Farmers Alliance main purpose was to relieve the excessive tax regulations and policies, created by major business monopolies, that installed pressure and the agricultural industry. However, the farmers could not afford such plan.
Germany had attempted to match the Royal Navy but the British had maintained their position in the later naval arms race. Later, the allies developed the “all-arms attack” plan, which caused Germany to find it hard to win. Allies cooperated and all worked together which caused them to be powerful. However compare the Allies to the Central Powers, the central powers were weaker as they didn’t work together. Nearly half of the troop strength for the Central Powers came from Germany in World War One.
Feudalism was a social system during the dark ages. On the top of the feudalism triangle was the king, just below him are the lords and nobles, below them are the knights that protected the king(dom), at the bottom of the triangle were the peasants. They were the slaves on the fifes (DBQ#2, Doc 1). “For the majority of Europeans, life was hard. Serfs / Peasants were required to work the land.” (DBQ#2, Doc 2) This shows that feudalism was hard on the peasants.
