  • Cuban Missile Crisis - 1,184 words
    Cuban Missile Crisis The Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 was the closest the world ever came to full-scale nuclear war. When the Soviet Union placed offensive nuclear missiles in Cuba, President Kennedy interpreted the act as one of hostility that would not be tolerated. However, the situation was blown way out or proportion by the president, American media, and ultimately the citizens of the United States. The Soviet Premier, Nikita Khrushchev, was reacting to the Bay of Pigs Invasion of Cuba, US Missile installations along the Turkey/Soviet border, and the clear anti-Communist policy of the United States. Khrushchev was born in Kalinovka in southwestern Russia. He was raised in a poor family ...

  • Its The End Of The Worldand I Feel Fine - 1,589 words

Dr. Strangelove represents scientific obsession; Strangelove is brilliant and thrives of the application and success of his own genius.

  • Question 1 - 375 words
    QUESTION 1 Explain what is meant by globalization. Is it really a myth? Globalization is the free movement of capital, goods, services and labour around the world, by big commercial companies, which have massive control of the world's economy, transcending the boundaries of state and country. This transcendence across countries results in the shrinking of the economy and results on it depending on larger companies with a controlling interest in most of the capital within it. This global control of capital comes through the transference of operations from superpower economies, to third world countries. This transference takes place for purely economic gains, with companies seeking to take adv ...

    The Rise of the USA as a Superpower The Rise of the USA as a Superpower The development and use of nuclear power has led to the United States assuming a position as the true World Military Superpower. The Unites States was the leader in planning, building, testing and actually using the most powerful nuclear weapon known to man. This country also led the world in relatively safe production of nuclear power. The only other competitor to the United States, the Soviet Union, had poor leaders, induced a poor economy, and eventually led the country to lose the race for superpower. During World War II, the United States began the research and development of the atomic bomb. Code-named the Manhatta ...
