The Treaty Of Versailles - 1,851 words
The Treaty of Versailles: Prelude to WWII The Treaty of Versailles was not a justified treaty which created German feelings of revenge and dislike towards the victorious countries. This feeling of revenge felt by Germany, in addition with the social atmosphere of Europe, led to a second World War in the September of 1939, just 11 years after the first World War. People at the time published reports on the unfairness of the treaty. America never ratified the treaty but Britain and France still enforced it. Germany had no choice but to sign the unfair diktat1 and there was only a matter of time before things turned for the worse. We must examine the background, clauses, and effects of the Trea ...

Israel P.l.o. Peace Treaty - 1,621 words
The Middle East has always been known as the Holy Land, the land of the Bible. For centuries, prophets have walked there, nations have collided and conquerors have come and gone. While Jews claim a three thousand-year-old attachment to this ancient land, Arabs also stake their devotion. In 1993, these two peoples, involved in a tragic conflict that has lasted more than half a century, saw the possibility of a new beginning. It was called the Oslo Accord, and it transformed the political realities of the Middle East (Peres, p.2) However, there have been many turbulent events that have followed the signing of the Accord, events that have undermined the agreement and are threatening to drive Is ...

Israel P.l.o. Peace Treaty - 1,581 words
... f the Oslo Accords, a new spirit was felt in Gaza as it came under Arab administration. Where Israelis had patrolled, Palestinian police now kept order, and there was a building boom. In opinion polls, 70% of Palestinians supported the peace process. However, there were also disappointments. Millions of dollars had been promised in international development funds, but little money was actually arriving and the Palestinian government often proved ineffective. Oslo had promised change and possible Palestinian statehood, but 90% of the West Bank was still in Israeli hands, making the Palestinian goal of statehood distant. (Finkelstein, p. 120) For months, Israel had pursued Yehia Ayyash, a ...

The Fourteen Points And Treaty Of Versailles - 695 words
When Woodrow Wilson came to power as a president, four important elements came to his mind: covenants are kept public, world be kept safe to live in, treat everyone as equals, and allow people to live their own life. He believed that all people should be allowed to decide their own future; he called this "Self-determination" and he wanted an end to the empires which European countries had built up. This systematic view showed true to his personality as he formed many visionary acts for the removal of discrimination and removal of struggling powers like the Clayton Anti-Trust Act, which lowered the domination of large corporations. His ideals for equality, justice, and respect created a conti ...

How The Adams-ons Treaty Affected The Growth Of Our Nation - 763 words
Americans were interested in further expansion and looked to the weak Spanish provinces of East and West Florida. The Spanish were reluctant to give up what is now Florida, but in the end they worked out an agreement called the Adams Onis Treaty. In this essay I will describe how the Americans eventually got these provinces, the set backs of the signing of the treaty, and how it effected the economic growth of our nation. Americans living in West Florida between the Iberville and Perdido Rivers declared their independence, and President Madison ordered the Governor of New Orleans Territory to take control of the independent land. The Americans now had control over half the territory they wan ...

Article 231 Of The Treaty Of Versailles - 1,664 words
Firstly, we must proceed to explain the nature of Article 231 in order to be able to analyse its judgement about Germanys responsibility for the war. After the war had ended, Europes, especially Frances economy was devastated. There was also a general desire for such a war never to repeat itself, as the first proof of modern warfare proved to be ruinous. To deal with this two issues the allied powers made Germany sign the war guilt clause which made it accept all the guilt for the war and because of this, pay reparations to the affected states. In this way Frances economy would theoretically recover faster while Germany was kept economically weak so it could never attempt to cause a war agai ...

President Bush And The Anti-ballistic Missile Treaty - 780 words
When the Cold War came to a finish in 1972, the Soviet Union and the United States of America knew some sort of action needed to be taken to evade a nuclear war in the future. The U.S. wanted an agreement with the Soviet Union for the limitation of strategic offensive arms. From this dilemma, the Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty was produced, and signed, by both countries to put an end to their aggression towards each other and to limit anti-ballistic missile systems designed to defend against strategic ballistic missiles. After nearly 30 years of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty being in effect, the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, and extenuating circumstances taking place in the ...

Despite Woodrow Wilsons plan for peace near the end of World War I, he failed to gain Congressional support for the Treaty of Versailles. The Treaty of Versailles was intended to be a peace agreement between the Allies and the Germans. However, once the negotiation of the Treaty, the Allies found they had conflicting ideas and motives surrounding the reparations and wording of the Treaty. The Treaty formally placed the responsibility for the war on Germany and its allies and imposed on Germany the burden of paying the debts of war. In addition to foreign opposition, Wilson couldnt even gain support for the treaty in the United States. Because of weaknesses in the treaty, domestic opposition, ...

To What Extent Did The Versailles Treaty Contribute To The Crisis Faced By The Weimar Government? - 1,148 words
The Versailles Peace Treaty, signed by Germany in 1919, can only be partially held responsible for the crisis faced by the Weimar Government. In 1923, the Weimar Government reached a terrible crisis point in which it sank into chaos, facing serious problems both politically and economically. Politically, the Weimar Government encountered extreme opponents from both the right and left wing; however, not all political threats faced by the Weimar Government were due to the Versailles Peace Treaty. Economically, the Weimar Government were also faced with severe difficulties.

Critique Of The Historical Debate On The Versailles Treaty - 1,339 words

It was hoped that the treaty would ensure that the first world was had been the war to end all warshowever this was not to be and the treaty became the subject of much scrutiny pretty much from the get-go. Many of the youthful insiders from the American and British delegations claimed immediately after the conference that Wilson had abandoned his earlier plans and had in effect betrayed his supporters. Others felt that Wilson had kept his main objective in mind; peace while others had tirelessly sought other benefits from the treaty, mostly revenge and money. The level of hostility towards the treat ...

Examining The Impact Of The Treaty Of Versailles - 765 words
After the Allies victory in World War 1, much of industrialized northern France lay in desolate ruins. The Allies, and the French in particular were very bitter towards their defeated enemy, and vowed to extract reparations. For a young newly formed German republic, these debts to the world were of such incredible proportions, that nobody ever believed that they could be paid. Facing a full occupation, they had to try. Outside of Germany, the Allies were divided by their respective opinions of the Germans. A combination of war debts to the USA and the enormous reparations thrown onto Germany caused a complicated and unstable economic flow, that ultimately cumulated in a global depression. Th ...

Treaty Of Versailles - 559 words
The Treaty of Versailles was the peace treaty signed at the end of World War I between Germany and the Allies. It was negotiated during the Paris Peace Conference in Versailles, beginning in early 1919. Four major powers were represented at the conference- the United States, Great Britain, France, and Italy.

The Fourteen Points called for free trade through lower tariffs and freedom of the seas; a reduction of arms supplies on all sides; and the promotion of self-determination, both in Europe and overseas. The plan also sought to create t ...

Characterization Of Democratic Republicans - 733 words
The Democratic Republicans were almost always characterized as believing in following the strict construction of the constitution. They were opposed to the loose interpretation the Federalists used. The presidencies of Jefferson and Madison proved this characterization to be somewhat accurate. It is true that both Jefferson and Madison supported the ideas of the Democratic Rebublicans but, they also did many things that contradicted them. In Thomas Jefferson's letter to Gideon Granger, Jefferson shows his ideas on how the Constitution should be interpreted and how they oppose that of the Federalists. Jefferson tells Granger that he believes they will be able to obtain a legislature which wil ...
