In conclusion, I think that Gandhi was quite important in India gaining independence as he had done many things that impacted the peoples view of the British government, however I feel that other factors and individuals should also be given equal credit as they had also played a major part in the gaining of independence of India from Britain as they had not only impacted the wealth of Britain at the time but they had also changed not only the British governments view of the colony in India but also other countries view of it and so in my opinion, should the other factors and individuals not have played a part, Gandhi might not have managed to achieve independence for India from the
These works embody the idea of protest of the wrongs and injustices done by organizations like government that have arguable too much control. These authors, in their own ways are able to tell their own stories of protest and how to protest respectively. It is easy to see the similarities, and this is understandable because of the fact that Gandhi was greatly influenced by the works of Thoreau, and it is almost ironic because of Gandhi’s use of the phrase “civil disobedience” in his work. These two important literary works will remain just that, important, for a long time because they serve as the model for the first works regarding

Gandhi advocated for an India that is self-governed in accordance with Indian principles, values, and practices. Not one that simply operates within a British structure. Further, Gandhi allocates a small portion of his book to scrutinize modern civilizations and modern technologies. In this paper, through the examination of Gandhi 's theories proposed in his book "Hind Swaraj," I will contend that although Gandhi 's view of how civilization ought to be and Indian self-rule does hold some truth, there are various deficiencies in his reasoning and what implications his writing has on our modern society. Initially, it is imperative to define Gandhi 's conceptualization of what civilization is.
Introduction The Tang dynasty is regarded as the Gold Age of Chinese history, and it is also considered as a cosmopolitan empire, which was open to various cultures and intertwined with different religions and people. However, some scholars argue that the cosmopolitan Tang empire had gone after the rebellion of An Lushan (755-763).

This paper will try to reconstruct the historical background regarding the “xenophobia” and the frontier poems in Tang and the rhetorical use of Non-Chinese in Chinese texts during the mid-imperial China.

Many Historians said that the British adopted this strategy to strengthen the Raj. The divide and rule thesis is a plausible method to explain rising communal antagonism. There were several factors that encouraged communal antagonism in colonial India. The British administration’s policy of course was one of them. The policy treats the masses as gullible agents.
