The Disintegration of Yugoslavia Introduction As one of the most misrepresented series of major events in history, the disintegration of the Yugoslav state is an intricate event to follow due to the sheer number of parties involved and the consequent “systematically distorted” historical and journalistic narratives surrounding the subject. Still, however, this seems counter-intuitive, as Yugoslavia was always deemed to be an artificial state and its dissolution had seemed, at times, inevitable. Despite this, several characteristics made its dissolution quite distinct and complicated. For example, prior to conflict, Yugoslavia had survived a respectable 73 years, so its disintegration holds an intriguing element of suddenness. Additionally,
However, according to Benjamin, (2015) this territorial division increased already existing tensions within the colony. Each region was largely comprised of one of three major ethnic groups, and all desired representation and political power in the central government. Benjamin, (2015) states that after Nigeria gained independence from Britain a power struggle ensued between the three regions continued. Regional desires for political power were one of the major underlying causes of the Biafran War. The conflict was the result of serious tensions, both ethnic and religious, between the different peoples of Nigeria (Benjamin, 2015).
War has- regrettably- been the answer to many conflicts in human history, ranging from the Sumerian’s conquests to the invasion of Iraq by the US and its allies. During its long history, war has been questioned and contemplated, especially through culture: music, poetry, literature, etc. Two prominent pieces of anti-war literature include Catch-22 by Joseph Heller and For Whom The Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway. Both novels express contemporary fears and questions on war: its impact, its conduct, and its purpose; as well as frustrations and dangers of a modernizing society, industry, and bureaucracy, however the former has a comedic tone, while the latter is serious. Tone is a very powerful and moving tool for both Heller and Hemingway in their novels.
North vs. South Throughout the years, the United States endured many social, political and economic changes which affected the North and South in many different ways. Discussing these differences, we will notice that they caused a lot of controversy between the colonies that, at times, led to wars. The major political struggles during this period were focused primarily on states’ rights. At a certain point, settlers began to come to the realization that they wanted to become their own country and not be tied to Great Britain. Once the idea began spreading, the British took action by imposing many different laws and taxes upon the colonies.
The medieval India witnessed the foreign conquests more than ever. There were continuous attacks by Turkis and Mughals who plundered India for a long time. Those political invasions did not only change the regime but also influenced the culture. The medieval age and women The medieval history can be further divided into two different phases the ‘early medieval period’ and the ‘late medieval period’. This era has witnessed number of foreign invasions because of which there was absence any social structure and stability.
Colonialism is the exploitation of both a country’s resources and citizens by a stronger power that has taken control of it. Since the start of the 16th century, colonialism has been incredibly prominent with global powers, but, in turn, this has led to a dramatic subjugation of developing nations. This colonization has caused a lack of knowledge of one’s actual culture, terrible living conditions, and a sense of hopelessness and hatred toward their rulers, all of which represent the power that colonizers hold over the colonized countries’ heads. To begin, colonized nations often lose a sense of identity and culture as time progresses. As represented in Chinua Achebe’s “The Empire Fights Back”, many overlooked nations feel as though their
Centrifugal forces are forces are forces that tend to drive a nation apart, rather than unite a nation. During the past half century in the United States, many centrifugal forces have affected this country continuously. One especially challenging force is the huge amount of diversity in the United States. Different religions, languages, culture, customs, immigrants, and ethnic groups clash against each other. This raises the issue of racism, which makes many minorities feel discriminated against.
When the imperialism of the 19th and 20th centuries revisits us now in the form of globalization, the inherent class conflict is more intense and complex than it had ever been in the past. To ensure its dominance over science, technology, economy, media, etc. for ever, Anglo-American English, the lingua franca of globalization, seeks control over all aspects of language and translation. George Steiner who tried to compose ‘a poetics of translation’ has specially discussed how the authoritarian ascendancy of English over other languages is pushing the languages of Africa and Amazonia into premature death and extinction9. Steiner is afraid that, when under the spell of market economy English brushes aside other languages, it will lose its own ability to address reality creatively.
All these spring up as a result of underdevelopment, religious and political segregation in the most region. Those involved in the Boko-Haram rebel group have carried out a different operation to destabilize the country economy, mass killing, bombing marketplaces, and institutions. However, all those ethnic crises and Boko Haram attacks were tagged as a purpose of recognition and domination in this particular region. In the region, almost every ethnic group is trying to influence political power which as a result of this it’s coursing to much bloodshed and also disruption economic growth mainly on goods and
