England and Russia were both thriving countries in the Middle Ages. They had many similarities and differences in the ways their monarchs gained power. One way is that they both got invaded by outsiders, but Russia defeated the Mongols and England got taken over by its invaders. Also, England and Russia both had a parliament, but in England they shared the power and in Russia the tsar had complete control. Finally, they both had the church to lean back on, but the Russian tsar overthrew the church’s power and England had the church help them create common laws.

During the Second World War, after many of the men left to join the battle overseas, women were once again given the task of running the nation, and in order to do so they took over traditionally ‘masculine’ jobs, such as working in munitions bunkers, and on farms. By doing so, women were able to keep the economy running, which helped pay for war efforts and even provided the nation with more jobs. Contrary to WWI, women were now encouraged to take on more jobs directly related to the ongoing war. For instance, on the home front, an approximation of 35 000 women were working in munitions factories, making the artillery for the soldiers. Not to mention, for the first time in Canadian history, new positions in the military such as Women’s Royal Canadian Naval Service (WRENS) and the Women Division (WD) in The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) were created so that women were able to contribute more towards the war efforts.
From 1900 through 1960, Russia participated in the First and Second World War and even started to fight in the Cold War. Russia was going through major reforms and industrialization to catch up with other countries. One change that occurred in Russia from 1900 to 1960 was that it tried to become more industrial so that it could be compared to other European countries. Russia was trying to do what other European countries were doing for years but it was seen a major threat because it was communist. However, Russia wasn’t always communist.

The Crystal Palace is still a symbol of the Victorian era (Felder 135) and the impacts it had in its own territory, and around the world as
The progressive era which lasted from 1890-1920 in American society was the institution of radical reforms brought about by the millions of Americans involved in volunteer organizations across the country. During this time Americans worked to create solutions to the problems caused by the rapid industrialization and urbanization of the country. The progressive era was not a single movement, but rather a collection of movements all of which were intended to improve the lives of Americans. This was a truly remarkable time for women and the end of the era would see almost universal women’s suffrage with the passing of the nineteenth amendment in 1920. The success of the progressive era can be contributed, at least in part, to the large participation of women in these volunteer organizations across the country.
The Bolshevik and Chinese Communist revolutions shared similar political climates leading up to their eventual success in gaining control of their respective states. Both revolutions would have to overthrow governments put in place by revolutions. The nations in which both revolutions occurred in would also have a strong history in a long standing form of government. These revolutions were both able to achieve success largely in part due to their nations previous political climates. The Bolshevik revolution, also known as the October revolution, put in place the third governing body in Russia in a year.
Throughout the nation’s turbulent history, Russia’s governmental collusion and radical economic transitions has created an everlasting dark cloud that has tainted their image in the eyes of the free world. The Russian political system as of recent has begun to accept democratic principles, however the totalitarian governing policies of Vladimir Putin remains to be lacking essential credentials of country who “embraces democracy.” Nonetheless, with a past filled with countless shifts in the state’s political system and trade economy, the western nation has still found a way to remain afloat as one of the world’s most prominent superpowers. In the text, the author makes his opinion quite evident that Russia can sustain itself regardless of any
