Unlike Korea, Japan at this point has been heavily modernized and really started viewing and embracing western ideals as practical, applying it to their nation as a whole. Already holding negative views toward the west, and by signing a treaty with Japan who is a nation that has embraced their ideals and way of life is distressing to Ikhyon. It is no better than creating relationships with the western nations that Korea has isolated themselves from for so long. Viewing from this perspective, it would allow the Japanese to eventually have power over Korean society. Their western-taught ways could heavily affect many Koreans, especially through their products, and possibly other western things such as religion could leak in.
Midway was closer to the U.S. bases which were crawling with American submarines and therefore easier to protect instead of the geographical location of Japan were trying to provide resources to Japanese on the would be occupied island would stretch out Japan’s already depleting sources as pointed out by Commander Miyo. Symonds also shows how the war wasn’t a miracle by
Japan attacked Hong Kong as it was under Britain, which were their enemies, and it would be a jab to them if they lost, and the Japanese were on a train ride, with every stop being another success; after winning against China, a huge country, Hong Kong didn’t seem like a strong opponent. And since they had just attacked Pearl Harbour and taken away multiple vessels from the USA, they knew that America would have cared more about Pearl Harbour. They also knew that the land was good land to own, as it can work in many different strategic ways. And in order to be able to collect this piece of land, the Japanese needed a large amount of soldiers. In the category of manpower, they delivered, as they sent 50,000 men, whereas the defence,
used its military advantage to force other countries into doing what it wanted. The reason that the U.S. was so powerful was its strong navy. The navy itself was a result the book The Influence of Sea Power Upon History by Alfred T. Mahan, which showed that great empires in the past grew because they had strong navies (Imperialism & The U.S., Causes of Imperialism, 12/4/17). One example of the U.S. using its strength was in Japan. Commodore Matthew C. Perry had quickly opened up trade with Japan on March 31, 1854, when the Japanese realized that they could not compete with America’s tech and weaponry (Expansion in the Pacific, Perry Opens Japan, 12/12/17).
The negative effects of the Mongols The Mongols had more negative effects than positive effects on the world. The Mongols were cruel and vicious people. Through this cruelty then were able to invade and conquer more territories and expand their empires. The Silk Road was both negative and positive effect. The positive effect was that it allowed people to converse, trade and helped the spread of religion.
It had more negative impacts in the modern world today then beneficial impacts. A beneficial impact stemming from the 20th century is seen in the progressive nations, which indicates how the bigger nations provided for the littler colonies. The nations manufactured them streets, waterways, and railroads. They demonstrated to them the broadcast, daily paper, set up schools for them, gave them the blessing of their civilization, and in general economized them. They were a piece of present day society after this happened.
One of their most impactful, both positive and negative, relationships was with America. The colonial relationship between Britain and the US initially had a positive impact on the British trade and political power, but negatively affected the Native Americans and Britain's finances during the American Revolution. Once Britain had conquered America, their
For India 's political and economic standpoint, imperialism helped improve there government, travel, and trade. Except for the social aspect. Imperialism hurt India more than help. They helped because they help fight off more diseases for Indians to lower the death rate from disease, but they raised the famine and hunger deaths by a lot. I think imperialism was good for India for almost all aspects.
The reason was because during World War 1 the United States followed the policy of Imperialism. They decided to extend their military, economic and political control over Cuba, Guam, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Samoa, Alaska, the Philippines, the Panama Canal Zone, and the Midway and Wake islands. Even though imperialism is believed to be a bad thing today, it was once seen as a good thing by a majority of the United State citizens. The majority were businessmen that wanted international trade among countries. It was also favored because it brought more raw materials into the United States.
Industrial revolution might be one of the greatest revolutions to occur in human history. During the era of industrial revolution economic and social the lives of people changed and great western cities prospered. Many western nations relied on another nation from raw material they need for their industries. So, western nation and Japan decided to seize control of other nations that have the raw materials. Through imperialism, western nations and Japan spread their rule throughout the world.
Although Biggart would lean towards the institutional approach, I partially agree that Japan’s institutions allowed for its growth but this was not the case for Taiwan. They both utilized their markets but networks significantly helped Taiwan while institutions catalyzed Japanese
Theodore Roosevelt was deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize because he helped settle the dispute between Russia and Japan. He also made a deal with Japan concerning Korea. These things may not seem like much, but they made a huge impact on many countries. In document two, the picture illustrates how Roosevelt reconciles the parties of Russia and Japan. Roosevelt got involved in the war for the main purpose to keep the balance in East Asia and to protect the United States power in the Pacific.
(Quote) “It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something!”. (Background) Critics stated that FDR and his administration’s methods were not effective. (Thesis Statement) However, the response of FDR’s administration to the problems of The Great Depression was effective because they created the New Deal, revived enterprise, and made better use of industries.
The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was the final action that brought the U.S. into WWII. When the U.S. joined the war, they sided with the Allies. The major Allies were the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union. The Allies worked together to defeat the The attack changed many Americans opinion on whether or not the U.S. should become involved in the war. Many citizens now wanted to become involved in the war effort to help the Allies win the war.
Many people consider World War II a successful and beneficial war to the Unites States of America. They say that the jobs that it created pulled the country out of the depression, and that people working towards the war effort brought the nation closer together. I do not agree with this idea of World War II being a “Good war”. I believe that instead it resulted in the mistreatment and abuse of the country 's own citizens, and poor communication resulting in unnecessary panic among american citizens. The effects of World War II on the American homefront involved mistreatment of Japanese-American citizens, as well as splitting up families across the nation and creating a rise in panic and chaos in American cities.
