Nonetheless, Manela felt that this was not the case because he said there was another significant incident that deserves to be looked at too. It was about the colonized countries that wanted to challenge the status quo. Similarly, he argued that historians before him looked at the anti-colonial struggles individually but he would now look at them as a whole because he said that it was all international anti-colonialism. In addition, he stated that historian before him did not centralized President Woodrow Wilson as a catalyst for anti-colonial nationalists across the world but he felt that Wilson was very vital in helping colonized people create the idea of self-determination. After WWI ended and world major empires like the Austo-Hungarian and the Ottoman empires collapsed, the U.S. emerged from WWI as more powerful, economically, militarily and politically.

Overthrow, by Stephen Kinzer steps in to a view of the United stated that not many people would care to bring to light. He implies that since the 19th century as the American frontier diminished the consistent involvement of the United States in the disposition of foreign regimes has spanned the test of time, and showed the great lengths that we are willing to go to push our interests and policies. As history shows, the American business is what drives our policies, and furthering the grown of business is the concrete interest. Delving further in to” Overthrow”, Kinzer further demonstrates numerous examples that further show the American “Interest” in taking over foreign regimes, as well imposing democratic influences or the spread of national security. While these ideals have coincided with numerous overthrows, however they never really had the needed effect until business interests came in to play.
David Shahverdian & Thomas Rorick Ms. Mocarski AP U.S. History September 24, 2009 Differences in the Development of the New England and Chesapeake Colonies When historians investigate the cause of the American Civil War, they often disagree about where the foundations for such a violent and bloody conflict began. Some argue the war was for political power, that the Union needed to maintain control of the Confederate states. Others vehemently defend that it was purely an economic conflict, that the war was driven solely by desire for economic prosperity and economic profit. Still others maintain that it was socially driven, a war based on the differences in fundamental beliefs between the Union and Confederate states. But in our history it is important to realize that it may not be one of these causes, but a combination of all of them that created the conditions that began our civil war.
Being President, Monroe had a significant amount of power over the country and its government. Monroe’s Doctrine opened the floodgates for Manifest Destiny after the nation knew the government was behind it. Document A provides evidence that Monroe was correct with his prediction that America would follow the government’s lead and head west to protect the country through Manifest Destiny. The strongest argument against Manifest Destiny was the fact that would bring slavery to the new territories America gained. Not only was this false, Americans and politicians who were anti-slavery overlooked this because spreading what they considered America’s good qualities was more important to them and they wanted to follow Monroe’s Doctrine.
While Murphy covers a variety of subjects for comparison in his book, I have chosen to look specifically at the military similarities, which Murphy does in chapter two his book, aptly titled The Legions. While I do not agree with all of Murphy’s claims, after reading through his book I feel that America could be seen as a new Rome in some lights, and the
The constitution contains our unalienable rights that protects us from government. The bill of rights spell out for every american what they can do within the realm of their freedom. Our constitution is our structure. The three branches of government and the checks and balances are all still fundamental in the running of america.But there are outdated sections of it that need to be reguvinated, that need to be discussed for the betterment of our government.It need to declare issues like heathcare and an economic plan so that the country can have a clear path to walk through. It seems like america is too proud to let go of its constitution, it has become a historical trophy for our government that sits and collects dust.We must re-draft the constitution,keeping some fundamental sections but reforming parts that no longer are important, and to add sections that have become a part of america.The action of even questioning the relevance of the constitution, shows the old and non functional nature of the constitution.
In some respects, this revision follows the lead of historian William Appleman Williams who developed the notion of an American informal empire, growing out of nineteenth-century "Manifest Destiny," aggressive protection of free trade and open markets, and finally, into direct confrontation with the old empires of Europe in the twentieth century.  Bender's view is slightly different, emphasizing the very long history of American engagement with European Empires--the successful American Revolution was, after all, partly a consequence of the enmity of France and Britain. As Bender concludes: the "American way of empire was even presented as anti-imperialism because it guaranteed openness, in contrast to the exclusivity of the old empires" (p. 233). This statement is an important argument because it links the visionary perspectives of Thomas Jefferson, for example, to the much later engagement of the United States with European colonial empires. It also illustrates an essential point, which is the moral center of the work.
Both Thomas Jefferson’s and Andrew Hamilton’s beliefs and views helped to shape the United States into the country it is today. Although both men had excellent intentions for the future of America, their desires for America and its government conflicted in numerous ways. One important conflict between Jefferson and Hamilton was their opinion on the type of government the United States should have. Jefferson felt that a government run by the majority would be the most ideal form of government. He says, “After all, it is my principle that the will of the Majority should always prevail.
People must believe they’re American’s and not just Texan’s or Iowan’s, meaning they need to fight for the country and not just for their state. I believe that his main goal was to make sure everyone was united and happy together as a nation. Washington mentioned that he was happy with how united everyone was during his presidency and says that is one of the strongest things about our country. As long as people work together, they can fight off any other nation that tries to attack the United States and overall avoid boarder wars. To do so, he says they must pay attention to anyone that is complaining about the size of land being ruled by the republic.
