  • Bubonic Plague - 577 words
    Bubonic Plague The Bubonic Plague, or Black Death, had many negative as well as positive effects on medieval Europe. While being one of the worst and deadliest diseases in the history of the world, it indirectly helped Europe break grounds for some of the basic necessities for life today. The Black Death erupted in the Gobi Desert in the late 1320s, but one really knows why. The plague bacillus was alive and active long before that; as Europe itself had suffered an epidemic in the 6th century. But the disease had lain relatively dormant in the succeeding centuries. It is believed that the climate of Earth began to cool in the 14th century, and perhaps this so-called little Ice Age had someth ...

  • Confucianism And Its Implications In Modern China - 1,847 words
    Confucianism And It's Implications In Modern China Confucianism is a time enduring philosophy that has stood up to invading clans, war, resentment, enforcement and infringement of new philosophies, and eventually, revival. For almost 80years, up until the late 1970's, Confucianism and its ideas and values have been all but wiped away from China. Though effort was made to remove Confucianism for good from China by the Communist leader Mao Zedong in 1949, the ideas and values were so deeply embedded into peoples mind and the culture that even suppression could not keep it out of the culture and practices. The main factor that has brought Confucianism back into the limelight in China and other ...

  • Many Factors Helped Aid In The Dynamic Growth That Occurred - 770 words
    Many factors helped aid in the dynamic growth that occurred in Japan and the four little dragons during the post-World War 2 period. Some of these factors were situational factors unique to the time but some of the factors were cultural. The legacy of Confucianism in Japan and the four little dragons helped to further the goals of industrialization that these nations had. The traditions of Confucianism provided for Japan and the four little dragons both a pliant public and a model for choosing competent leaders. Confucian traditions placed an emphasis on the values of the group over the individual. This helped industrialism by creating a pliant populace who were willing to accept long hours ...

  • Politics And The Truman Macarthur Contoversy - 1,946 words
    Politics And The Truman/ Macarthur Contoversy July 7,2000 Politics and the Truman/MacArthur Controversy The precarious peace following World War II was at times only seconds from degenerating into a world wide nuclear war. The intensity of the cold war allowed for minimal error in foreign policy. It was during this tense and volatile time that General Douglas MacArthur fought what some deem his war in Korea. While he had proven himself time and again a brilliant military leader, his behavior was not impeccable. He tended to rely too much on his own authority, a trait not dear to Congress or the President. It was this tendency towards insubordination and his flagrant vocal outbursts that resu ...

  • The Bomb That Saved Millions - 1,496 words
    The Bomb That Saved Millions The Terror that Saved Millions The atomic bomb and it's use over the two Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is still a source of heated debate even over fifty years later. Many people on both sides -Japan and The United States- hold the belief that Truman's decision to drop the bomb was a mistake and that under no circumstances should such drastic measures be taken in war. What these people do not realize are the far more horrible alternatives than the destruction of just two cities: an invasion of mainland Japan where millions of more deaths would have occurred, Soviet aid resulting in the division of Japan into a communist nation and the destruction of t ...
