The troops would have felt let down as well, so therefore wanted reform and supported Mussolinis violence tactic. This also links in with the north south divide as the troops would be in the south and it hadnt industrialised as much as the north causeing a huge divide socially and economically. This demobalisation of the troops would have threated the higer classes as the troops could easily over power them for the land. Obviously the 5 million troops would have supported Mussolini and therefore caused a growth in his support. Another reason for Mussolinis success was the weakness of the political system.
The Ancient Greeks are the most significant to western culture because of its creation of different types of government, ideas on philosophy, and the impact of Hellenistic culture. If you think of America you think of mainly one thing, democracy. The Athenians invented democracy. Athens was founded around 500 B.C. Athenians were the first ones to give power to someone who they think will actually be good for that job, and not simply due to noble blood or force.
His book was largely one-sided and biased, and was used more for propaganda and justification for the three million deaths the nine-year war caused than for a light read or entertainment. In the book he tried to paint a picture of barbarian tribes who needed to be forcefully civilized, and he took this route to further his political career. "The Conquest of Gaul" by Julius Caesar was a great literary work of its time and had a large impact on ancient culture, although it was a very biased view of the conquest of Gaul it showed that Caesar was far more than a bloodthirsty leader, he was an intelligent, resourceful
The magistrates made laws and decided the most important decisions affecting the state. When Emperor Augustus died, popular elections were outdated. It was expected instead that the imperial household would produce the successor to Roman power. The power had moved from the hands of the people, to imperial rulers, their households, and their heirs. This dramatic change was the culmination of civil strife and open warfare that created the conditions for powerful men to dominate the state, and to exclude the will and
However, the number of Plebeians (non-patrician members in Rome who sought refuge or were war captives) grew with time, and because they could own property, some became wealthy and wanted to be equal to the patricians. Tarquinius Priscus became the first king to introduce the plebeians as lesser people to the Rome Republic while the patricians maintained the honorable status of greater people. This marked the beginning of an end to class differences. Servius Tullius, another Etruscan king, saw that Rome would be more competitive and stronger than her enemies if the Plebeians paid taxes and served in the army, just like the patricians. Therefore, he divided the people in the Roman territory into districts and townships depending on location, with the four in the city called city tribes while in other in other parts called rural tribes, and all paid taxes and served in the military.
154) After the rise of Julius Caesar the whole Mediterranean world became under roman legeslation. (pg.154) One of the most profound leaders under Julius Caesar, Marcus Cicero a philosopher who oppossed tyranny and political corruption. (pg.154) Cicero believed that monarchy, aristocracy and Democracy were the three principles of construction to a good government. (pg.155) Rome was more based on a legeslative attack, romans in the old days are more recollected for having great knowledge of the world we live in today. One of the most influential people in Rome was Marcus Cicero, a great philopsoper as we say and exam most of his work today we see a story of a honored and respected man as well as loyal, but his loyalty would prove to be his greatest downfall and which would lead to his exicution.
The political impact of France was the main factor that spread ideas. Soldiers who fought in America bought some of the ideas back across to France. Even though victory restored some prestige to the monarchy, the financial impact of the war was to make this restoration of prestige short lived. The American war was an important cause because it affected France in a lot of ways. France got affected economically which made the people of France lose hope on monarch.
Livy is also very quick to complement Hannibal and tell the reader just how great a leader he was. This is done so that when one looks back at Hannibal they say that if Hannibal was such a great leader Rome must have been far superior to be able to defeat him. This sense of modesty was how the Romans were supposed to treat the Carthaginian General but they did not. It is very interesting to see that all the evil qualities Livy talks about that are in direct contradiction roman were said to be traits of Hannibal, but for the most part were actually how the Romans themselves had acted. Hannibal’s actions constituted such a threat to the Roman way of life not because of the physical threat to the Romans but because he did the impossible and made it to the gates of the city of Rome.
Augustus, or “the revered one”, was the first appointed Roman emperor after the collapse of the Republic in 27 B.C. Under his rule, Rome developed into the sophisticated society that spawned one of the greatest civilizations our world has ever seen. To fully grasp the importance of the Roman Empire under the rule of Augustus, we must first examine
However, in reality it made it hard for Italy to sell abroad (due to the higher prices), so Italy lost its competitiveness on the world market. In addition, serious deflation took place and by 1936 the government was forced to devalue the Lira. To summarise, the reform was a failure as – although in the short run, Italy seemed powerful, in the long run the economy suffered. The battle for the Lira was a propaganda victory in which Mussolini successfully confirmed the image that the fascists were bringing stability and prosper to Italy, without actually doing so. Mussolini also had two other battles; that for
