She protests, “[y]ou never used to judge people like this at home.” Ronny announces that “India isn’t home” and relies on “phrases and arguments that he had picked up from older officials, and he did not feel quite sure of himself” to silence his mother and convince her of his adopted new logic (p.54). Adela, too, notices the change in Ronny. “India had developed sides of his character that she had never admired. His self-complacency, his censoriousness, his lack of subtlety” (p.96, my italics). The colony changes the personality of the coloniser in almost every aspect, even aesthetic appreciation.

Being in the middle of recreating a new a strategic position for the polaroid brand, the company was suffering losses left and right.

After fighting to keep the brand alive, in 2008 the company announced it would stop producing instant film, ending the brand (Staff, B). Revitalization of
In 1985, leadership of Sierra Leone was passed over to Momoh, a former military general who was inept at handling state affairs. As a result, the State continued to ignore the needs of the people. Already a fragile state on the verge of collapse, the situation in Sierra Leone deteriorated further in the 1990s. The Revolutionary United Front (RUF), a rebel group, invaded Sierra Leone from Liberia. The government, weakened by years of poor management, was unable to protect its citizens nor did they have the ability to secure the country, another indicator of its fragility.
He lost a lot of supporters because of his attempt to undermine the system. He made a second mistake, when he reduced the federal money from the economy. This caused the economy to collapse again from lack of support, causing the Roosevelt Recession. There was no longer a chance of passing additional New Deal legislation. (-,
At the inception of diplomacy when the need for diplomats arose, men of credence, tactful, of high intellect with impeccable character were carefully selected with the instructions to promote trade ventures of their home countries . This immunity was extended as a courtesy to allow for an uneventful stay in the host country. As times went by and government policies change, the instructions given became modified to suit the needs of the home countries and her citizens. Further into the future, the criteria for choosing or becoming a diplomat became politicised resulting with a government sending people even those with little or no diplomat-like qualities to represent them all over the world. Quite naturally the abuses that follow due to the unsavoury characters laced with immunities and privileges
This idea gained significant attention on American side because it proposed bilateral platform that would work to solve global and bilateral problems and increase stability across the globe. This type of mechanism could be a solution for Sino-American problems and third-party regional problems along with the global crises and wars. Also, increasing U.S. debt and dollar dependence between China and United States could lead to such platform. This would be a peaceful and tangible solution for current and future problems and must be worked through. However, Chinese side is not that willing to move into such platform.
For example, the United States has been successful in establishing itself as a global superpower because of its ability and desire to cooperate with other great powers, not because of its self-interest of survival. By creating trade deals and signing treaties, both of which are cooperative measures, the United States has furthered its own interests, and has made absolute gains, by cooperating with the rest of the world. Institutions such as NATO, the EU, and the UN have facilitated cooperation between their constituent nations as well as with the rest of the world, which provides evidence for Keohane’s argument that institutions foster cooperation between nations (Keohane). Furthermore, neoliberalism is a much more logical explanation than neorealism because of the establishment and strong presence of institutions, and cooperation through institutions, on the international stage. Neorealism explained world politics better during the Cold War era when institutions were new and weak, and states were afraid of each other’s power, such as the United States and the then Soviet Union.
