Both empires had a great impact on the rise of Islam from the development of Islamic governing practices to the creation of a religious doctrine. The growth of Islam was influenced by the bureaucratic tradition of the Sasanians, the legacy of the Byzantine, and by the concepts of the emperor that had developed in the courts of Ctesiphon and Constantinople (Cleveland & Bunton 6). One of the key points of the expansion of Islam is the imperial rivalry between the Sasanian and Byzantines that broke out into open warfare from 540 until 1629. This opened up the road for Islam to spread and provide a better alternative for the people of Arabian Peninsula and the surrounding people under the rule of these two empires. Under the

As America evolves throughout the twentieth century, so does what people view as important, which adds on to what the American Dream means. The culture of the 1920s encouraged spending and materialism so people sought money, power, and expensive items to make them happy. In the Great Gatsby, Jay Gatsby, who is the epitome of the 1920s American Dream, saw that becoming rich and notable was the only way to get his Dream which was Daisy: “She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me.”(Fitzgerald, ch 7) Furthermore, despite the fact that Tom was born with a silver spoon, he still felt he didn’t have the American Dream because Gatsby was more popular than him: “I know I’m not very popular. I don’t have big parties. I suppose you’ve got to
Syed Khan was known for regenerating the Muslim culture with the establishment of schools, colleges and university. He started the successful Aligarh movement which put great emphasize on the cause of Urdu. Bringing the cause of Urdu, he tried to formulate the political demands on behalf of all Indian Muslims thus creating a pan Islamic movement in India among the Muslim community. Besides, in order to foster communal consciousness and brotherhood, he founded the Muslim Educational Conference in 1886 as a platform for the Muslim intellectuals in Indian subcontinent, This platform gained momentum during that time period because it helped with the process and articulation of their demands and defend their interests and vent out their grievances, thus playing a role of the Congress for the Muslims. The Aligarh movement which Syed Khan had started became the source of modernist and rational thinking among the Muslim intellectuals.
British imperialism had a negative impact on the people of India because of health problems in India and the English language. Lalvani says that the health and life expectancy both improved dramatically when ruling (Lalvani). However, the total deaths due to famine before British ruling was 18 million, but when the British ruled there was a total of 40 million deaths due to famine or 58.73% of the population (Doc 11). This shows that the British didn 't care if people were dying, they only cared about making money off of them. Lalvani also claims that the spread of English language allowed communication between people from different backgrounds (Lalvani).
Introduction E.M. Forster’s novel ”A Passage to India” is set between the British Raj and the Independence Movement of India. It is set in India, in the early 20th century, when India was still one of the British colonies. With the novel, Forster in a way “challenges” the belief that the British had the right to colonize Indians. One of the main reasons of the British colonization was that the British believed they were superior to those who were poorer than them, and those whose skin was different than theirs; they believed it was their duty to “civilize the savages”. After the publication of the novel in 1924, as Mohammad Shaheen states in his work “E.M.

It promoted Indian good so that India’s economy would improve. Thus the Swadeshi movement started, the weaving of khadi was promoted and dumping of foreign goods was prohibited. The struggle period of India started around and use of khadi was promoted. Mahatma Gandhi started wearing dhoti when others asked him about the costliness of khadi.

Norms of self-determination and claiming independence from imperial powers have defined the twentieth century and have influenced major upheavals in countries with colonial histories. The Egyptian independence movement used multiple tactics to gain autonomy from the British justified by the principle of self-determination. Nationalist leaders in Egypt used the burgeoning norm of self-determination to claim independence by undermining the colonial norm of foreign influence in the domestic functioning of the state through revolutions and widespread public support. These expressions of international norms are important because they have shaped the political climate and tensions in the Middle East. The norms of self-determination and gaining independence from colonial empires have defined the twentieth century.
