The Effects Of Romes Expansion - 2,611 words
Expansion overseas gave Rome the opportunity to strengthen its empire by war; But, as a drawback it resulted in the breakdown of the Republic, as well as its Empire. Expansion Overseas made Rome a mighty empire for a short period of time, until both the Empire and the republic became unstable and eventually broke down. Hooker, author of Roman History in 1996 states: Roman history begins in a small village in central Italy; this unassuming village would grow into a small metropolis, conquer and control all of Italy, southern Europe, the Middle East, and Egypt, and find itself, by the start of what no other people had managed before: the ruled the entire world under a single administration for ...

Then, on the day of Caesars funeral, standing before a huge crowd that had come to see the dead leaders body, Antony delivered a stirring speech. Sixteen centuries later the English playwright William Shakespeare would give Antony the immortal opening words, Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me youre ears. I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him. The wily Antony not only ended up praising Caesar but also revealed to the crowd the contents of Caesars will. The dictator had left his private gardens as a public park and al ...

Asian Expansion - 639 words
The idea of a global village in modern terms brings up thoughts of a world that is completely connected on each continent by telephone, media, and Internet. The idea of a small world has become a part of everyday life only recently. Although the world has not gotten smaller since the 13th century, it has become more closely connected. This connection was thought to be the work of Western Europeans during the age of exploration and furthered during the imperial age, but now historians using an entirely different approach to history have reanalyzed this idea. By looking at the time in a more global aspect, historians have now reconsidered the idea that Western European expansion caused the con ...

Westward Expansion And Imperialism - 652 words
Throughout most of the nineteenth century, the United States expanded its territory westward through purchase and annexation. At the end of the century, however, expansion became imperialism, as America acquired several territories overseas. This policy shift from expansionism to imperialism came about as a result of Americans experience in the Spanish American War and the Congressional debates that followed the American victory. After temporarily resolving the problems of Reconstruction and Industrialization, Americans began to resume the course of expansion. The horrors of the Civil War had interrupted the original Manifest Destiny that began in the 1840s. Now, as pioneers settled the last ...

New industries were created which opened many possibilities for the near future.

Was The Atomic Bomb Used To Stop Soviet Expansion? - 432 words
There has been a long- standing debate on why the atomic bomb was used to defeat Japan. The threat of Russian advancement in Europe and in Asia was enough to worry the top officials in the United States and British governments. Wherever Russia would go, they would conquer that area for themselves. The imminent invasion of mainland Japan and the allied casualties that came with it were also a factor in the decision to drop the bomb. If the allied forces had invaded mainland Japan, many lives on both sides would have been lost, probably more than there lost in the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki put together. The tactics that the allies had used up to this point cost hundreds of thousands of ...

Disney's Attempt At Foreign Corporate Expansion - 1,534 words

Such an installation is not mandated by French law. The French believe the sprinklers are not necessary since "...their hotels are built with superior construction, building materials and compartmentalization, and are equipped with smoke alarms that would quickly summon firefighters" (McIntyre, 1990b, p. 143). 2 Thus, since Euro Disneyland was a French Company, the French did not believe they needed to install sprinklers. The Walt Disney Company believed in such sprinkler installation and embarked on an education program to explain why ...

This in fact did not happen. Many guests arrived early in the morning, spent the day at the park, checked into the hotel late that night, and then checked out early the next morning before heading back to the park. Since there were so many guests checking-in and checking-out, additional computer stations had to be installed at the hotels in order to decrease the amount of time the guests stood in line. Labour Costs Before the opening of Euro Disneyland executives had estimated labour cost would be ...

Euro Disneyland made a huge mistake not considering the views of the French when developing their marketing strategies. The Walt Disney Company agrees there may have been marketing mistakes, but it blames the mistakes to lack of data on how Europeans would react to the "Disney Magic" (Euro Disney: The not-so-magic, 1992).

The Modern Expansion Of Cellular Phone Use - 1,546 words
Over a decade ago the house phone was such a remarkable advancement where it provided a person to call places over thousands of miles away. Then the ease and comfort of wireless phones came out.

The farming economy was greatly helped by the expansion of the railroad system. The railroad became one of the main and most efficient ways to transport farmers produce.

The Expansion Of English In North America - 923 words
Language is important part of life in any country. When the United States of America was founded there were as many as 20 languages spoken on its territory. Besides, many documents were also printed in various languages. This was not comfortable for people that lived in the country. After that period, English started to dominate in the North America duet to several reasons. North America is the continent, which is populated by immigrants from Europe. Large groups of people were moving to North America. Quite often, they were settling in separate groups, where they could continue speaking their native language. However, eventually together with the unification of country it became obvious tha ...

Imeprialism Should We Or Shouldnt We - 562 words
Imperialism:Should We or Shouldnt We? The decision of America to branch out and expand the country is a decision that has been highly debated over the course of Americas history. It was a difficult time in America, around the 1890s; and America was faced with a dilemma. The working class was poor and most Americans felt it was because of overproduction. The popular belief was that America was producing, it just wasnt using it all. The belief of overproduction and another popular belief of Manifest Destiny were the driving forces behind imperialism. I believe these reasons alone were not sufficient enough to justify the building of an American empire. Imperialism in America at the time was a ...

Outsiders Locking In - 1,010 words
In the United States something very odd happened during the period of time from the middle of the 1950's up to the impact of the crisis of the 1960's. For once in the storied history of the United States a majority of Americans accepted the same system of assumptions. This shared system of assumptions is known as the liberal consensus. The main reason there was such a thing as liberal consensus was because of the extreme economic growth we experienced in the U.S. during the post World War II era. However, the consensus didn't apply to one important group of people. These were the combat soldiers it the Vietnam War. Their experiences at home and abroad suggest that they were outsiders to the ...

The gold rush of the 1850s symbolized Americas quest towards westward movement, challenges of life on the frontier, and the impact it had on Californias growth. As a result, the gold rush strongly influenced the shaping of American History. Many people that had heard of the gold rush in the 1850s moved right out there as fast as they could to get their hands on that gold. Once the people got out there they wouldnt return back to the east. As a result, the gold rush strongly influenced the shaping of American History. James W. Marshalls finding of gold on January 24, 1848 led to the expansion of the West Coast and the beginning of a new state, California. Marshall discovered gold in a mill on ...

The Atlantic crossing lasted three to five weeks from West African trading sites such as the Gambia, Senegal, and Sierra Leone Rivers. Near the equator, in regions such as the Bights of Benin and Biafra (near present-day Nigeria), the voyage to the Americas took several months.

Lassezfaire Government - 389 words
Laissez-faire policy has always been a fundamental principle of the federal government. Between the years of 1860 and 1900, the governments role seems to be very small. New government policies are almost nonexistent and the few policies they enforced were standard government administrations. However, toward the end of the century, economic growth in the US can be linked to direct government intervention. From the mid 1970s to the early 1890s, the federal followed standard government procedure and maintained the national military, conducted foreign policy and collected tariffs and taxes. The national government had little diversions to result in additional responsibilities. The lone exception ...
