(Guiding Question A) Case Study 1: Exchange of goods and technology The exchange of goods and technologies has been a key aspect in the success of nations worldwide. The general idea is to move forward with the help of other nations by exchanging goods and technologies. Specifically, guns and raw materials. The British played a big role in the exchange of these goods. However, guns and raw materials were not the only things traded.
Before this many Colonists did not know of the harsh injustices done by the British. They also did not believe that the cause for revolution was urgent. Thomas Paine showed them that the cause was urgent by explaining the wrongs the British had committed and why King George was a tyrant. He also showed them that America did not need the British Empire 's protection. This quote shows his reasoning “Small islands, not capable of protecting themselves, are the proper objects for kingdoms to take under their care; but there is something absurd, in supposing a continent to be perpetually governed by an island.” Another reason it was so influential is because it was sold very cheaply so as many people could read it as possible.
Initially, European countries were looking for a water passage to China so they would be able to trade for their goods. Spain, who lead the charge, landed in Central and South America, captured gold and silver. From this the Spain were able to grow their army and hence, their political power. Next in line were the France who landed in North America and discovered the land to be ripe with animal pelts which brought great wealth to the French. The Dutch had found the same success as the France.
Analyze British taxation policy and explain how it contributed to the American decision to start the American Revolution. In the beginning, British taxation policies were not exactly stringent on the colonists. Prior to any military conflicts in America, the colonists paid little in taxes and in their economic activity, they were free of worry about the British government and its need for funds. Any military conflicts bring postwar results, for which few parties prepare for, including devastation to land and loss of human life, but specifically those industries that thrive while providing some of the military weapons and equipment, their articles are not in demand anymore. Debt increased while the demand for this articles decreased, creating
In fact, “ New York and Philadelphia were home to a wide range of ethnic and religious groups. (__________)” New York and Philadelphia become prominent centers of commerce and finance; thus, they thrived in manufacturing, flour milling, lumbering, and mining, which were all key components in its revenue and trading network. In order to have these working businesses and industries prosper, the Mid- Atlantic colonies relied heavily on indenture servants: men who came to work in exchange for free passage into the Americas. Once these men came into the Americas, they were brought into a world brought into a world of religious tolerance of various groups, and they were brought into the political domination of the Quakers, a group devoted to the Religious Society of Friends, and the merchant, who sold goods to the other
This impacted the art industry in India and took away their pride. British Colonialism brought positive impact on Technology in India. During the British rule, India opened the first national railway line from Madras and they also launched the first passenger railway line in Bombay. A major impact in technology that Indians adopted was the telegraph line and the postal service. Despite the major changes in law, culture, economics India truly grew in technology during British
Before the American Civil War, both the Northerners and Southerners states were making economic advances. The railway allowed for the formation of a communication system that was national. The availability of railroads made the settlements of the western states easier. Immigration had a steady increasing rate and economy was booming for the North. They also discovered mineral resources that boosted the iron and textile industries of the North.
Not only has it shaped the country to the way it is today, it also developed the entire world into how we know it today. In the lead up to WW1, the British army had lots of support from their commonwealth countries overseas, making Britain a huge rival for many countries, in battles and wars prior to WW1 and a force not to be reckoned with. A lot of these countries could and still can speak English due to the spread of the empire which strengthened trading relationships and allowed Britain to gain more wealth and produce. Additionally, Britain now had more money to spend on weaponry, ships, vehicles and to develop tactics - this obviously augmented the British military and reinforced their chances of
Being a Moor certainly makes Othello an outsider. Despite his position he managed to get an important position in the army because he was good at his job. This, and the simple fact that he is a Moor makes people angry. When another character would have been a Moor too, Othello would have stood out less than he does now and the play would certainly not have had the same impact as it did with Othello being the only Moor. In conclusion, a great deal of structural racism can be found in Othello.
At the same time, both empires continued to develop agriculture through well developed irrigation systems and irrigation canals. The British Empire changed the Indian Economy in a way that made the Indians more dependent than they were under the Mughal Empire. The Mughal Empire sold Indian cottons for European coin.
From what each main idea was, Source 1 and 2 seem like good compare and contrast. Source 1 talks about bring back the draft while Source 2 explains why the Draft was unpopular and not needed anymore. For example, “ The draft forces people from different backgrounds to work together and depend upon one another. These could be socio-economic divides, but can just as easily and likely be racial ones” (Source 1). In War soldiers are forced to work together and most of the time they don’t really care if you’re black, white, Irish, or whatever, as long as they can follow orders and shoot, than they were alright.
Sure, they needed the resources that the Indians had, but they were able to take those by force and overcome villages to fuel their own personal needs, so they were unconcerned with the wellbeing of the actual Indians providing these items. Spanish troops easily overcame any Indian resistance due to their more advanced steel weapons. With things like “swords, pikes, and crossbows” (23) the Spanish quickly prevailed over any Indian armed with their weapons made of stone. As the Spanish colonists migrated into the arid southwest regions of the present-day United States, they didn’t turn to the Indians for help. Instead, “the colonists depended on governmental shipments, which arrived only once in every three or four years” (29).
