Although conversely, the very dissimilar landscape between the two swayed their political growth. The mountainous terrain and numerous islands that make up Greece made it difficult for city-states to interact with each other, which resulted in each city-state growing individually. The ruling class of every city-state was against forming any kind of monarchy and defended their independence. Rome was very flat in comparison to the Greek terrain with mountains on the east side and what is now the Tyrrhenian Sea off to the west, which caused Rome to grow to become one huge city-state. Rome dealt with immigrants and intruders from the north and south.
Persia and Greece had more similar economic systems. Both Persia and Greece depended on agriculture to support the economies in their societies. They depended on their agriculture so that they could trade with multiple other countries. Because Greece’s terrain was not prime for agriculture, Greece colonized many other places to trade with that could produce many crops. Even though both Persia and Greece traded with countries such as Anatolia and Egypt, Persia had a wider
In Ancient Greece There Was two Major forms of Goverment Obligarchy and Democracy. The city States that best represented each goverment were the Spartans Who Were The Obligarchy goverment and the Athens Who Were The Democracy Goverment. The Athens goverment was fair and Advanced for its time. It did not Meet The needs Of Greeks during the time of military battles. Athens decided to worry more about culture.
A government was established in which people were elected into upper house and lower house, however the governors rarely made an appearance. Their independance meant that they had a wider franchise so they could pass useful acts to benefit themselves. Lack of communication was a major issue between the two, as Britain was over 3000 miles away. This meant that it was extremely difficult for Britain to have any involvement with the colonies, which resulted to salutary neglect. It could be argued that salutary neglect weakened the relationship, however the colonist's may have enjoyed this freedom to do what they wanted and make there own decisions.
Paige Lowe October 6, 2014 Classical Athens and Han China: How Great Were the Differences Two major civilizations, Classical Athens in the West and Han China in the East, had many differences but how great were they? Classical Athens and Han China were different due to their forms of government, the relationship between the individual and the state, their views on man and nature and their background information. Within the background information of both Athens and Han China there are very evident differences between the two. The first document shows the maps of both the empires side by side. The Han Empire is much bigger than the Athens city-state Attica which is a mere 50 miles long, while the Han Empire stretches over 2400 miles long.
The major difference being that Athens council of five hundred men were chosen by lottery. Regardless of Athenians reputation of being highly educated, they very well could have been a few Athenians who were not quite suited for the job because of their lack of education. Sparta’s council was composed of the two kings, and 28 citizens over the age of 60. They did not debate, unlike Athens, but with having less people on their council and assembly, they had a more uncomplicated and less confusing way of running their government. Sparta certainly did not give its citizens as much freedom as Athenian government but the fact that they had less people in not only their city, but on their council and assembly, made it an easier and more effective way to run their government in a smaller amount of time.
Although the Delian League and the United Nations have much in common, they are still very different, too. In the Delian League, Athens technically ran it. Other city-states had to pay Athens and give it money just so they could stay in the group and be protected. They also had to pay for the ships that protected them. But in the United Nations, everyone was equal.
Frances Tseng How Great Difference between Han China and Athens Different countries have different development. Especially two countries are in the different areas in the world. Today we are going to compare the difference between Han China and Classical Athens. Those two countries are not near to each other, they are pretty much far away from each other. China is a really huge area compare to Athens, and it related to their civilization.
Also, the Spartans were rich because owning property and passing money down their families made for future generations to have money  the government of the Spartans was of an oligarchical rule. This meant that only few ruled; which meant either the rich or kings ruled. All free men could vote in their assembly on many issues. This resembled a demokratia. The poor could vote for the ephors, which theoretically, would run Sparta.
While Obama did take the $30k and under voters at a 62.7% clip Romney’s 34% the other categories gave me some interesting information. While the President did win the $30k-$59999 category, the margin was much closer than I thought it would be with Obama garnering 50% of the vote to Romney’s 47.2%. Given the margin for error in these types of stats this could almost be considered a victory for the Romney camp. The surprising numbers that I found came in the two upper income brackets where the numbers were a lot different than I anticipated. In the $60k-$99999 category, Romney held a 51.3% to 45.3% advantage over Obama.
