The seventeenth dynasty of Egyptians princes from Thebes continued to rule in semi-independence but paid allegiance and tribute to the Hyksos kings in the north. The territory controlled by these Theban rulers extended from the Nubian border as far as Abydos The reason that the Hyksos was able to dominate Egypt for such a long time was that there military was much more stronger and more advanced. There main fighting advantage was the horse drawn chariots that they had, unfamiliar to the Egyptians. The chariots gave the Hyksos better mobility and power and since the Egyptians didn't know the chariots they didn't know how to defend them selves against there attacks. They also had more advanced weapons such as bronze swords, scimitars daggers, powerful composite bows, they were bigger and had greater striking distance to the Egyptians small bows.
What in your view was the short term significance of Martin Luther King? Martin Luther King can be considered a key individual in the Civil Rights movement because of his influence on both the public and political leaders with his powerful speeches, the most famous being his ‘I have a dream’ speech, as well as his undeniable leadership qualities. There is also the view that King became ‘the face of the movement’ as it can be debated that he was the most popular leader in the struggle for black rights which could mainly be a result of the development of media which helped present both a positive and negative image of him but ultimately allowed him to rise to fame. During the several years of the movement King had many significant successes, such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955, as well as numerous sit-ins and marches that he was involved in. However, there is also the contrasting argument from historians, such as Peter Ling, that whilst Martin Luther King participated in some important events in the movement that represented the process of change, his role in the Civil Rights Movement and the amount of transformation he actually achieved could have been exaggerated greatly.
.” (Document 9) As shown by charts illustrating both industrial and agricultural growth (Document s 2, 3, 6), Stalin’s economic venues helped Russia to become a modern industrial society and let to Russia’s rise to a world power. Also the focus on heavy industry made to help increase the grandeur of the state. Under a command economy, in which the government controls all decisions made concerning the economy and personal lives, Russia with no doubt grew strong. Stalin said “To slow down would mean falling behind. And those who fall behind are beaten.
This view is largely accredited because Pitt came into office in a difficult time but events around him seemed to benefit him rather well. Britain was entering the industrial revolution at the time, industry rose up and trade would boom due to expansion of the industries at home and abroad, the advancements of technology meant that Britain was going through a natural change that arguably Pitt was able to captain through leading to better fortunes. The natural opposition from the Whig party against the king led by Charles Fox meant that Pitt naturally had the Kings support against any opposition which could be thrown at him, the king would back him up. The American Revolution and his lack of connection to it meant that he was seen as a new politician not one of the previously failed governments who’s lack of control and rule in a situation. And lastly the regency crisis of 1788 meant that Pitt could use this to gain favour with the king and gather support from his own party and draw it away from the opposition.
For Obama to be a Machiavellian prince he does not only need power, but it depends on how it’s used through military matters. It is considerable to consider Obama a prince because he focuses on cutting government spending on the military. Also, he deals with being blamed on how a prince should keep his word. – This last sentence does not blend with the paragraph- The opposition claims that he won the presidency not by good fortune and not through his own truthful words. They say he turned the key to “weak masters” and begged to foreign directors.
One reason why people could have believed that he had succumbed to fascist customs is because his ego grew exponentially in office. After years of behaving in a free wheeling manner, Long began to embrace the notion that he didn’t have to follow the rules imposed by others. In Suzanne LeVert’s Huey Long: The Kingfish of Louisiana she explains that the fame and attention of the nation started to affect Huey’s ego. She quotes him saying “I am the constitution around here now.” Long started to imagine himself as a supreme leader. Some believe if it not for his assassination Huey would have tried to force his way into office again.
• The executive branch held too much power. All these are valid points and I would say that they were right in resisting to sign the Constitution, specially with no limits on the rights the government would have over states. They wanted to make sure where the states would still have power over some of their issues. They had just faced having to take care of soldiers, being prosecuted without trials, not being able to talk
ImperialismOsama bin laden and his followers charged another thing on United Status that the UnitedStates is using his power in the countries where it has military occupation formerly and thegovernments of these countries are alike puppets for it.They also blame that the United States unseat the government who turn against it and denyaccepting his order.There may be others factors about it that why Bin Laden do not like America or hate it. It can bestate that until unless these factors are present the issue of terrorism and insurgency is difficultto resolve. It is also seem that it is difficult to bring any improvement in the politicalcircumstances in the Middle East without resolving such
Faced with all this various obstacles, there’s no way the President will ever become too powerful and thus pose a threat to democracy. The Madisonian system (separation of powers and checks and balances) is strong enough to check and prevent such tendencies. In my perspective, the President isn’t ‘strong enough’ to stand up to the diverse interests in the United States and that’s because the Senate overpowers him. Also because the process to get things done is extremely long, frustrating and never reasoned by the people. The President is a human being like you and I.
Everyone can agree that men are not perfect. They form governments to protect themselves from one another. These governments can take many forms, ranging from a monarchy to a pure democracy. If we make the assumption that all men are created “equal”, then a democracy is the logical alternative since a monarch could not be an equal. But, pure democracy, where everyone weighs in on every issue, becomes impractical as societies become larger, more complex, and replete with issues.
