The Mexican Revolution (1910-1920) started due to a group of people disappointed with the way Mexican President, Porfirio Díaz, was ruling (Beezly), but would later evolve into a civil war. In 1910, the Mexican people overthrew the corrupt and sclerotic dictatorship of Porfirio Díaz, who had ruled the country for decades (Kennicott). With the revolt against the government many social changes began to occur. Women had a role in started to have a level of importance in society, which was very uncommon for the time. (Macias).
The Roman Empire is widely known for its many accomplishments and has left a huge impact on modern society. Rome influenced modern medicine, language, and the Twelve Tables was used as a resource for the Bill of Rights. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. The Roman Empire began to fall after Marcus Aurelius, the last emperor of the Pax Romana, died in 180 A.D. There are a large amount of different factors that led to the fall of the great Roman Empire, but the most crucial of them were the economic, social, and the military factors.
Historians often divide the Mexican Revolution into three main periods of fighting due to its length and complexity. Of the three periods, the one that had the most impact on Mexican society at the time was the first phase in which Francisco Madero overthrew Porfirio Diaz as new revolutionary leaders such as Emiliano Zapata and Pancho Villa arose. This period allowed people that were not usually involved in politics to become more involved. The phase of the revolution that had the most potential to create change in Mexican society later was the third one that saw Conventionalists take on Constitutionalists for control of the country. This stage created the Constitution and led to a single political party gaining control of México.

The Qin dynasty adopted Legalism as the dominant source of control over the people they ruled over while the Han dynasty adopted Confucianism to give merit or family connections. These two different ideologies impacted how long their dynasties lasted, and quality for those living under their dynasties rule. Legalism was a strict legal system and harsh consequences for denying to follow their system. Legalism centered influence towards a powerful government and, most people in power favored legalism because of influence over much of the people and land. Confusionism, on the other hand, put heavenly laws over that of mans.This made laws for citizens much looser than that of the Qin dynasty.
I believe that the Toltec of Tula was a highly influential kingdom, not an empire. For example, the Aztecs would look up to the Toltec. They saw the Toltec as glamorous. The Aztecs went to Tula’s sites and looted items to bring back to their own centers. For example, in the Palacio Quemado site, there have been many sculpted pieces lost due to the Aztecs looting the place to bring them back to their ceremonial center.
Even so, Montezuma, the emperor of the Aztecs, had to ruin the victory. As he had many options to choose from but he ended up choosing the wrong one many times. To sum up, could the Aztecs have won against the Spaniards? The Aztecs were peoples who
History books have illustrated the fact that some of the most successful nations in the past have looked to expand their influence across the globe and have sought to rule and control in order to become the ascendancy of the world. This concept of superiority became known to the human race as the development of an empire and numerous countries down through the centuries followed this idea with the intent of increasing their power and declaring their authority to the world. These empires, in their own unique periods of dominance in times past, became the power blocs of the planet and they almost completely controlled the places they conquered. They learned a vast amount from the colonies they occupied but have also left a great deal behind such
The movement and growth of power throughout history has occurred with many strides, but also with many obstacles. Jon L. Berquist writes “The process of imperialization simultaneously generates the process of resistance”. Berquist explains the pattern of an empire gaining power and consequently facing the repercussions of reign. The issues within imperialism rise from the hierarchal dynamic of its system. Especially seen within the Persian and Roman Empire, imperial power creates a society with diverse positions; some individuals who have everything and many with nothing.
The Incas and Aztecs were the two most powerful civilizations of Mesoamerica pre-colonial.
