This affected the country very much because they quickly began to be surrounded by people they didn’t know, and were unsure if they were trusted. This included mostly attackers of immigrants. They affected the downfall by spreading diseases, overpopulation, and attacks on some of the Romans. (Doc D and E). In the year three-hundred-eighty CE, the Ostrogoths, Visigoths, and the Vandals started to invade Rome.
The economic problem included the constant cost of an ever expanding army resulting in inflation and raised taxes. Thus, political, military, and economic issues were chiefly responsible for the fall of Rome. Starting with the political side of things, the Emperor
Due to the expansion, it was hard for the rulers and government officials to communicate and protect the Empire. Therefore Romans ruled over more land than they could manage. The Roman Empire was stretched across Europe, much of middle East, and the north coast of Africa. It surrounded the Mediterranean. Since all those places came under the Roman Empire, the rulers had to protect
In the case with Nero, the Roman citizens blamed the Emperor for starting the Great Fire for his personal needs, which created conflict in his own government and the greatest threat to his reign.
Feudalism: Its Rise and Decline With the transformation of the Roman Empire, the empire would no longer be a universal culture. With an ineffective government and no armies, the former empire experienced mass anarchy. Due to its weakened state, the empire had become more vulnerable. Because people need security, a new concept would arise, this concept would be known as feudalism.
However, it caused the World War because of pre-existing conditions, that caused countries to be on the brink of war. It was the alliances that divided Europe already into two major teams, causing tension between countries in the opposing alliances. Militarism set countries on the race to build the biggest army and navy which also caused tension between countries which were competing in the race to build the biggest military. The arms race got the countries ready for war, and since all countries build massive armies the war became one of the bloodiest wars that wrought havoc upon
World War 2 was the biggest and bloodiest conflict of the entire world history. Many world powers such as the US and Great Britain were involved in this war, which indicates that this was an international war. After its end, defeated countries were blamed for its devastating consequences. One of them was blamed most in particular: Germany. In this essay, I will analyze to what extent was Germany responsible for the outbreak of World War 2.
While on the other hand the Allied Forces had powerful allies such as the USA which could contribute greater resources of men and materials. Furthermore, the British had put in place a Naval Blockade prevent the passing of cargo of any ships that attempted to pass through, this was very effective and starved much of Germany’s population. Lastly, Germany’s two front with Russia greatly weakened German forces and had larger repercussions later on. Although these are all important causes, the most factor that
It left a scar upon the landscape, one that quite literally resembled a wasteland. For many people, who had never experienced this kind of devastation, World War 1 was like the apocalypse come to fruition; the world and its people were forever changed as a result of the war, but out of the ashes many great modernist writers emerged. Writers like T.S. Eliot, whose wasteland seemed to capture all that had been lost, not just physically, but culturally and spiritually. Divided into five sections and told through a kaleidoscope of voices that appear to travel across time and location, The Wasteland is filled with allusions to various myths and literary works that portray the declining human state, physically, spiritually and culturally, all as a result of urban apocalypse.
As there were many changes in the French government during the end of the 18th century, it begs the question, which system of government was France better off under? Towards its end, the French monarchy greatly struggled to support its growing population. Poverty and starvation were becoming increasingly more common, which was, in large part, caused
There are many reasons why World War II started. To put into a big category, the main cause of the war is the first world war. The countries reluctantly signed the Treaty of Versailles, also known as the Peace of Paris, because it did not satisfy any country (History.com, 2009). After World War I, many countries were indebted and economically poor; this is known as the Great Depression.
World War I and World War II were the largest military conflicts in history. They both involved powerful nations, such as America, England, France, and Soviet Union. The World War I was fought for acquiring colonies, and the World War II was fought for ideologies, such as Fascism and Communism. World War I and World War II were two wars that plundered people 's freedom. During the World War I, the reduction of "Civil Liberties" was more significant on the citizens.
The 1970 's negatively affected the US economy for a multitude of reasons but most importantly due to US foreign policy and the spread of communism in Asia. With tensions between the democratic US and the communist USSR rising each day, the US devoted large amounts of resources and money into the containment of communism in specifically eastern Asia. Examples of this would be the Vietnam war which lasted from 1965-75. This was a war that the US entered in order to help South Vietnam defeat North Vietnam. This was a long lasting and very expensive war that the US and South Vietnamese forces eventually lost.
The Roman Empire collapsed for many reasons. One of them I believe, is because it got too large. Because of that there was probably a more diverse group of people, this is just an example on a very large scale. It also shows up in Julius Ceasar, the people had different beliefs than Julius, their leader, which ended in his death. What if this were to happen in the United States?
Fall of Rome DBQ Including most of the Mediterranean world, Rome, a city that was growing big enough to become one of the world’s largest empire’s would soon slowly fall apart because of their problems. In 27 BC, Rome’s first emperor, Augustus Caesar, took complete power. During his time, he ruled with Pax Romana, a time of Roman peace which lasted for almost 200 years. After his death, the Roman Empire begun to break apart. The primary reasons for the fall of Rome was it being geographically too big; the population was decreasing due to plagues which led to the Roman army becoming weak, social and military issues and laziness of the military would guide the army down which led to cities being lost, and their government and leadership issues of the weak or selfish power leaders would all conduct to the breaking up of Rome.
