Signifance Of Anthropology And Archaeology - 1,521 words
Anthropologists and Archaeologists Anthropologists and archaeologists have influenced our lives in so many ways. They have taken us back to our most humble beginnings.

Mario Puzo - 582 words
American novelist, best-known for his Godfather saga. The novel stayed on The New York Times' best-seller list for sixty-seven weeks. Puzo's book had a deep impact on American society through its film adaptation, and the saying about "I'll make him an offer he can't refuse" has became a clich. Mario Puzo was born into an immigrant family in New York City in the area known as 'Hell's Kitchen'. His father was a railway trackman. Puzo lived with his six brothers and sisters above the railway yards. During World War II Puzo served in the US Air Force stationed in East Asia and Germany.

European Challenges To The Muslim World - 330 words
European Challenges to the Muslim World Religion has always played an important role in European society; Islam has usually been the major religion. It was no different in the 1700s and 1800s. During this time, reforms were formed to revolt against the government. These reforms most often stressed religious piety and obedience to strict rules of behavior. During these reforms, the government used their education against the people, by making treaties that gave them favorable rights to trade. Other than religion, nationalism has always been an importance and usually a negative. Nationalism has caused much uproar and there was no exception in the Ottoman Empire.

Australian Civilization - 1,674 words
A countrys foreign policy is only partly the result of decisions made by its government: it is mainly imposed by circumstances. Australia, during the last fifty years, has been a country unsure of its place in the world. She has been bouncing from ally to ally, begging for a place under their umbrella of protection, ignoring and denying her place in the Asian region, and struggling to find a foreign policy that is in the best interest of her welfare and security. Australia truly finds herself, pardon the pun, stuck on a rock in a hard place. The Asian region in the past half-century has been an atmosphere of turmoil and unrest. Communism threatened Australias way of life and the fragile nati ...

The ANZUS treaty has since become the cornerstone of the Australian foreign policy.15 Originally, the treaty was supposed to act as a protection from the powerful forces of Japan. But soon after ANZUS was signed the Japanese realized the strength of such an agreement and decided to sign a peace treaty with Australia as well. In 1952 Australia and Japan signed their own treaty for peace, and with this signing ended the age-old threat of Japanese invasion. This enabled Australia to work with Ja ...

Fall Of Teh House Of Romanov - 919 words
The Romanov family, a great and prestigious lineage, ruled over Russia from 1613 to 1917. Although it had, in the past, overcome all types of dilemmas, the Romanov family was to fall, at last, in 1917 with the resignation of Tsar Nicholas the Second.

None Provided - 1,325 words
Herodotus, in his book The History, tells us a good deal about how, in the course of the 5th Century, the Greeks came to define themselves by casting "barbarians" as a negative foil for those traits which they admired in themselves. By barbarians, Herodotus means the Others, those who were not Greek or European. The Persian Wars marked something of a watershed in this regard. Prior to the 480s the Greek view of their eastern neighbors did not seem to have been excessively negative or hostile. Following the Persian Wars, however, Easterners came to be portrayed in pejorative terms. According to Herodotus, they were seen as decadent and effeminate, in large part due to their excessive wealth a ...
