In the era following the Civil War, Industrialization had many leaders. These leaders achieved the great growth of the economy and industry of the United Sates, leading the United States to become the leading industrial power in the world. Many historians question how honest these men were with their actions, we critique them because of the way they distributed their fortunes. It is true; many of these industrial leaders did cause harm socially, creating barriers and many competitions nationwide. They are called “industrial statesmen” for the great economic power they helped America become.
After a failed attempted coup, the conspirators which included Garibaldi were sentenced to death. As a result Garibaldi fled Europe and sailed for Rio de Janeiro where he would continue to promote the idea of a unified Italy by joining branch of Young Italy in South America. Garibaldi soon became unsatisfied with continuous planning and the lack of action and so he became involved with different local armed conflicts such as the Uruguayan war against Argentina. Here he gained much needed military experience and raised a legion of deadly guerrilla fighters which played a great role in the Uruguayan victory over Argentina. Due to these events Garibaldi became increasingly popular in Italy, gradually becoming more and more idolized by Italian revolutionaries to the point he was represented as a divine figure.
To what extent was fascist control of Italy 1925-1943 the result of the effective use of propaganda? Mussolini used propaganda to expand his control over the Italian people. However, there are other factors to consider, including, Mussolini’s economic policies, his good relationship with the traditional elites and the use of repression. Firstly, Mussolini used The Cult of the Duce as propaganda to gain support, this method of propaganda was at its highest in 1930.

Germans were forced to pay for various repairs across different country what inevitably caused damage to country’s economy. The instability across the nation has been consistently rising, and the ruling government had to resign. In Italy the dissatisfaction of the nation with the government has also been significant, especially taking into account the defeat at Ceporetto or the collapse of the economy, which over past years was based on manufacturing weapons and other equipment that was needed for participation in the war. Both in Italy and Germany people were desperate for a change, they needed economic growth and development. There were no jobs, poverty was spreading.
With Mussolini’s strong beliefs in totalitarianism, militarism, nationalism, and imperialism, he was able to rise to power and carry out his Italian War Plan. As a Fascist leader, Mussolini greatly enforced totalitarianism, which was a form of government in which the state had complete control over almost every aspect of peoples’ lives. Mussolini was the foundation for totalitarianism in Italy. He set the stage for strong and secure leadership by practicing totalitarian dictatorship.

Rupert Murdoch, the founder, chairman and CEO of one of the world’s largest media conglomerates, News Corporation, owns 34% of the UK newspaper market, therefore widely contributing to the UK Press. As Murdoch’s newspapers are of the most read in the country it is not a surprise that his own personal judgements have been seen to wriggle their way into many an article. By analysing Murdoch’s economic and political interests we can evaluate how this has impacted the content of his newspapers and ultimately our understanding of them. The UK’s most popular tabloid newspaper the Sun owned by Rupert Murdoch was reported to attain a circulation of 2, 512, 170 from May to October 2012. This figure is almost three times the circulation of the Daily Telegraph (the UK’s most popular broadsheet), suggesting the Sun is the most read newspaper in Britain.
How far do you agree that the personal popularity of Hitler was the main reason for the increased electoral support for the Nazi party in the years 1928-1932? In 1928-1932, the Nazi party had a huge increase in support. By 1932 it had the largest support for the people than any other party. Hitler himself had an impact on the popularity of the party, he had great public speaking skills and could be very persuasive, and this boosted the popularity. However this was not the only factor that increased the electoral support for the Nazi party.
The mafia tended to be Italian-Americans, whose family had migrated to America looking for a new start in life and a shot at gaining a fortune. The mafia was spread across the whole of America with ‘mob bosses’ in all the major cities, to name a few there was Dutch Schultz in New York, Chester La Mere in Detroit and the infamous Al Capone in Chicago. These ‘mob bosses’ had their cities wrapped around their thumbs; they could do whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted, as they had control over the police and local governments. The mafia however, wasn’t just groups of rival gangs fighting each other. The mafia had split the U.S.A. into separate territories, with one gang controlling each territory, but there was always internal conflict going on throughout these territories, with mob bosses being deposed and replaced all the time.
Petra Bruno The Rise and Decline of Fascism and Nazism. After the First World War there was a lot of instability in many countries, some of them had enormous difficulties.
