This is called Prestige, this is important due to the fact that important world players around the world will take you seriously, at the same time respect you. All of this was great for the U.S, but imperialism was also a door opening for the U.S economy. During the Late 19th century, early 20th century
Britain put the justice and military system into place for India which made an efficient profit for them and made them all in all knowledgeable. Most of the governmental systems didn’t help the indians in fact the things Britain put into place for india only made india profitable for britain. While the British believed that they helped India by setting up a government and military system India disagreed. In fact, they believed that britain caused problems in the Indian way of life. An example of this is british imperial rule established the framework for India 's justice system (Lalvani).
The Captains of Industry were certainly one of the most important factors in the development of United States in the period directly after the Civil War. While there is some merit to the argument that the industrial leaders were Robber Barons that did more harm than good, their contributions to American society clearly outweigh those negatives. The Captains of Industry quite literally revolutionized the American way of life that gave the U.S. the highest standard of living in the world prior to the outbreak of World War I. This was made possible due to the emergence of corporations in areas such as finance, steel, oil, and railroads. When these men combined with other factors, such as the mechanization of agriculture, immigration, migration,
Both Progressive Era reformers and the federal government sought to bring about reform at the national level. Examples of such reforms they wanted to make include: trust-busting, consumer safety, restrictions on child labour, civil rights, and women’s suffrage. Overall, the Progressive Era reformers and the federal government were effective in their efforts from 1900 to 1920, however there were some limitations. During the Gilded Age, and prior, the quality of America was unsatisfactory. Big businesses were more powerful than the national government due to trusts.
The author writes with cyclical elements to show that mothers and daughters may be more alike than they may seem The theme of Marriage and Divorce is cyclical because two of the daughters get divorced, and one has great deal of problems in her marriage. In The Joy Luck Club, the daughters start learning how to stand up for themselves to their partners. Rose Hsu Jordan finally tells her soon to be ex-husband that she wants their old house, and she is willing to fight for herself (Tan 196). Lena St. Clair tells her husband Harold that she isn’t happy with their marriage (Tan 164). The daughters don’t think their mothers have substantial advice to give them about their relationship issues, but they realize their mothers are wiser than they thought.
In the beginning of the play, Nora thought and acted like the woman in her era remaining true to her marriage, with her only identity being her father’s daughter and a wife to Torvald; this is very evident in one of her dialogues with Torvald where she stated “I have existed merely to perform tricks for you, Torvald. But you would have it so. It's your fault that I have made nothing of my life’’ (Ibsen, 2008). On the contrary, the treasured marriage vows of the olden days have become nothing but a promise made to be broken as more women leave their marriages due to irreconcilable differences or at the slightest abuse be it mentally, verbally or
During living in Hanson’s house, the only subject they talked to each other is work. Beyond that, Hanson cares nothing about his sister-in-law. Instead of talking the impacts from Hanson to Carrie, it would be fairer to say the impacts from Hanson to Minnie. After marriage, Minnie’s outlook on life is greatly influenced by her husband, therefore, she views a narrower conception of pleasure and duty than the time she was a girl in the small place. Minnie is affected by the seriousness and prudencere of Hanson, becoming a cautious, timid, and smooth woman.
The Victorian era lasted from 1830 to 1880 in England under Queen Victoria, who has the longest reign in England history of sixty three years. This time marks the climax of England’s economic and military dominance. in the nineteenth-century England was the first modern industrial nation. The wars with France, and internal conflict, made England unstable, and their survival at point troubled. The invention of the steam engine and machine for spinning and weaving sparked the Industrial Revolution, creating growth of textile industry.
This lowered the competition in the trading world for the British and caused the British to have a major surge in power, that greatly attributed to the growth of their rising empire. The British’s ambitious motives in the trading world help portray a way that the British took control of an important piece in the economy of all of the other nations present in the colonies in the time period, and shows another leading factor in the growth of the British empire.
“Much of the blame heaped on the captains of industry in the late 19th century is unwarranted.” (Document F). The Gilded Age was a time where the U.S. economy grew very quickly and rapidly, due to the inventive minds and entrepreneurs of that time; but it has different perspectives of opinions in history today. This era led the U.S. to its state and place in the present world, thanks to its important contributors, (who are involved in the main debate of whether they were robber barons, unethical men who yearn for money, or captains of industry, leaders who add positive ideas and methods to benefit their country.) The industrial leaders of the Gilded Age are captains of industry, worthy of some gratitude and credit for how our society’s structure

The British were the strongest navy and army in the world and somehow the weakest the americans beat them. Do you remember how the United States was started. When it was made up of just 13 small colonies. I believe that it is important to know the story of America. America didn’t just start colonizing, America was fought for.
