  • American Expansion - 214 words
    American Expansion In a sense, the United States has been expansionistic from its very beginning. The 13 English colonies, clinging to the eastern seaboard, were determined to push westward despite all natural and political obstacles. Once established as a nation, the United States went about acquiring even more land, including Florida, the Louisiana Purchase, and the Mexican Cession. The expansion associated with the late nineteenth century was just one chapter in a long book. One can begin writting a paper anout expansion of the U.S. beginning with the founding of the colonies. Colonial expansion involved many resons- land hunger, flight from religious persecution, etc.- The next main expa ...

    Cons Of Nato Expansion Cons of NATO Expansion Throughout the Clinton years the government has tried to make NATO expansion look like a risk free operation. But the truth is that there are many risks and dangers that go with the expansion of NATO. It has been said that the expansion of NATO would be a fatal error in the American policy. As NATO expands it is drawing an imaginary dividing line separating the many NATO nations from the Ukraine, Russia and other countries in the eastern half of the world. The goal should be to settle things between Russia by joining with them and making good relationships with them economically, militarily, and politically. This was done between the U.S. and Ger ...

    Environmental Issus With Highway Expansion Gloria Stovall November 13, 2000 Sect: John Gulick Expansion of Highway 101 Since Highway 101 was completed in the early 1960s, no improvements or changes have been made and the highway has not been touched. Recently California transportation planners gave the final approval to the first expansion of Highway 101 in Santa Rosa. This raises some serious issues within the community. Although the planners have agreed to this change, members in the community have disagreements. The changes proposed consist of adding a carpool lane in both directions between Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park. There are issues raised with this proposal. Adding lanes to both side ...

  • European Expansion - 403 words
    European Expansion Bernal Diaz del Castillo accompanied Captain Hernan Cortez in his march on Tenichitilan (Mexico City) in 1519, resulting in the surrender of this Aztec capital in 1521. Castillo contends that he will give us the honest account of what happened and not to give a bias opinion of what happened. We read three different sections from his book. The first is his trip to the Caribbean, the second is his encounter in Cholula, and the third is the aftermath of the fall of Tenochtitlan. In theses sections we are trying to find the underlying themes, what the role of the conquerors was, and finally, what events does Castillo seem to refute. Since Castillo tried to give a pure account ...

  • European Exploration And Expansion - 721 words
    European Exploration and Expansion The five European powers comprised of Portugal, Spain, England, France, and the United Providences had early projects of expansion. The Vikings in ninth and tenth century moved as bands of merchant pirates looting trade ships and discouraging trade on the seas. Because of threats from people like the Vikings, early trade was discouraged. However, the Crusades from eleventh to thirteenth century resurrected the desire to trade and explore. The systematic infiltration of the Middle East during the Crusades led countries to experience the joys of expansion. From fourteen-fifty to sixteen-fifty there was a new project of expansion. Instead of the Mediterranean ...

    ... mple of such a development is an experiment at Sandia National Laboratories: "The co-operative monitoring center there seeks to make available in today's trouble-spots monitoring technologies and procedures acquired in the Cold War." The program seeks to develop IT solutions - procedures, instruments, and systems - so that adversaries may watch each other's maneuvers. Already showing some success, the center has brought Israelis and Arabs together to play simulated monitoring 'peace games' on their computer screens. The theory behind this application of IT is that if enemies are constantly watching each other with the same level of IT, the possibility of the surprise attack and even mere ...

  • The Expansion Took Place Largely In The Period Of The - 337 words
    The expansion took place largely in the period of the fifteenth through the eighteenth centuries, although it cannot be bound strictly at either end of the time scale. Movement outward from the western European peninsula took varied forms and shapes as it proceeded by land and by sea throughout Europe, Asia, and America. The result was a vast increase in power, wealth, and knowledge for the tiny nation states of western Europe. Spices were so important in the middle ages that they were a driving force in the age of discovery. The diet of the average European in the middle ages was bland at best. The lack of refrigeration and poor quality meats required some spices to make them edible. When t ...

  • The Exploitation And Demise Of A World: The Destruction Of The Native American Civilization Through Us Expansion - 949 words
    The Exploitation and Demise of a World: The Destruction of the Native American Civilization Through US Expansion. The history of the expansion of the American frontier has been one mired in controversy. Historians, such as Frederick Turner, have always referred to American expansion and the Western frontier as the settlement of an untamed wilderness. This view, however, is false. Long before Columbus even reached the New World a vast civilization, comparable to that of Europe, had established a stable and successful world. Even though they were considered to be the children of nature Native Americans had established themselves as shapers and exploiters of the Earth. They, like their European ...

  • The Reasons Underlying European Expansion And Exploration - 1,240 words
    The Reasons Underlying European Expansion and Exploration The Reasons Underlying European Expansion and Exploration It remains unclear why humanity chose a relatively spontaneous moment to matriculate from the sheltered semicircle of Mediterranean lands, to expand to the farthest reaches of the earth, with an inchoate disregard for personal welfare. However, pretentious man feels the need to speculate and impart drivelous reason, vain though it be: What were the causes of European expansion? An anonymous author proffers this model conjecture, "Western Europes outward expansion in the 15th and 16th centuries was caused primarily by the unique brand of centralized governments which developed i ...

  • The Westward Expansion - 462 words
    The Westward Expansion The westward expansion was a new concept for Americans in the 1770s. In their minds there was a abundance of land out west just waiting to be claimed. The people that moved out west thought they were doing no harm, but in reality they committing genocide which is the complete annihilation of an entire race of people. If somebody is taking things from you that is very special to you what is your natural reaction?. Its to fight back and try to regain the special thing back. That is what the native Americans did to the settlers started to take there land so they started to defend it. But no we didnt get the clue. We had no real consideration toward the native Americans.

  • Us Economy Expansion - 1,599 words
    US Economy Expansion The million (or should we say 'billion' now) dollar question is whether or not the United States' economy will stay in it's record 107 month expansion (according to the index of leading indicators) or come out of the boom and take a downturn into a recession. Nobody, including the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan has a crystal ball to provide insight as to what will happen if interest rates are raised, lowered, or left alone. However, Economists have developed a set of indicators to aid in predicting when a recession is about to occur and when the economy is in one. Indicators should not be mistaken for predictors. They are simply forecasting tools, and li ...

In recent months retail sales have increased faster than expected. February saw an 11.1 percent increase where a 0.9 percent increase was expected, marking the third strong gain in the last four months. The recent beating that the American public is taking in gasoline prices is undoubtedly the cause for a 4.3 percent increase in service station sales and one reason there has been a strong over all retail sales gains.

  • Us Expansion Of 1800s - 920 words
    US Expansion Of 1800s Throughout the first half of the 1800s or 19th century there were many factors influencing United States expansion. From the Louisiana Purchase in 1803 to the Gadsden Purchase in 1853 the United States had tripled in size since its original thirteen colonies and only paid forty-five million dollars in doing so. The idea of Manifest Destiny spread quickly throughout the country and soon thousands were moving westward in search of a new way of life. The idea of Manifest Destiny was for the U.S. to occupy the entire continent. The only problem was that the land it was expanding on to didnt belong to the U.S. One such factor that influenced the expansion of the U.S. was the ...

    Western Expansion Of The U.S. International borders have always been centers of conflict, and the U.S.-Mexican border is no exception. With the European colonizing the New World, it was a matter of time before the powers collided. The Spanish settled what is today Mexico, while the English settled what is to day the United States. When the two colonial powers did meet what is today the United States Southwest, it was not England and Spain. Rather the two powers were the United States and Mexico. Both Counties had broken off from their mother countries. The conflict that erupted between the two countries where a direct result of different nation policies. The United States had a policy of wes ...

The animosity with the Mexicans finally came to rise in the Mexican-American wars which spanned from 1846-1848. The reasons for the eruption of the hostilities included the annexation of Texas in 1845, claims of property damage by US citizens against the Mexican government and the desire of the United States to acquire California into their boundaries (manifest destiny). After failed negotiations in 1845 regarding land, the movement of an American army was considered as act of aggression and Mexican troops were sent to protect their land, in turn America declared war on 13th May 1846.

    Westward Expansion The Westward Expansion has often been regarded as the central theme of American history, down to the end of the19th century and as the main factor in the shaping of American history. As Frederick Jackson Turner says, the greatest force or influence in shaping American democracy and society had been that there was so much free land in America and this profoundly affected American society. Motives After the revolution, the winning of independence opened up the Western country and was hence followed by a steady flow of settlers to the Mississippi valley. By 1840, 10 new western states had been added to the Federal union. The frontier line ran through Iowa, Missouri and Arkans ...

Merk in his book Manifest Destiny says "a sense of mission to redeem the old world by high example was generated in pioneers of idealistic spirit on their arrival in the new world." It was generated by the immense potential in the virgin land of the American continents. Successive generations also gave this sense of mission life in various ways from the struggle of religious liberty in Plymouth ...
