The act was passed because the inadequacy of the current system was obvious, especially as the industrial revolution had hit Britain and towns were growing rapidly, leading to an increase in crime rate. For these reasons Peel decided to create to metropolitan police force. This administrative structure created served as a model fir the urban& rural police forces that we established in mid 1830’s. Furthermore as home secretary Peel also reformed the Penal code by removing the death penalty for over 180 crimes and introduced the Gaols Act (1823) as an attempt to improve the foul conditions of the prisons and increase efficiency of the system; he also repealed the Combinations act. The most important part of his career as home secretary would undoubtedly be his support to pass Catholic Emancipation in 1829.
Rauschenberg and Warhol Pop Art Movement Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol are two of the most influential characters in the history of modern art. Both artists emerged around the same time but had such different depictions of “Pop art”. Pop art was the movement of the 1950's and 1960’s, which brought much controversy. It was mainly concerned with the concept of commercial products and mass media being the center of the art pieces. Popular culture was a major theme in the works of this time where many things were changing.
Artists painted unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision, created strange creatures from everyday objects and developed painting techniques that allowed the unconscious to express itself and an idea. Many Surrealist artists and writers regard their work as an expression of the philosophical movement first and foremost, with the works being an artifact. Leader André Breton was explicit in his assertion that Surrealism was a revolutionary movement. Salvador Dali, one of the most famous representatives of surrealism, was a prominent Spanish Catalan surrealist painter born in Figueres, Spain (1904-1984). Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work.
Blanche and Stanley are deeply contrasted characters and many critics have pointed out that Stanley is part of a new America. An America comprised of immigrants of all races with equal opportunity for all, and he a symbol of the American dream. Blanche, however, is left clinging to a dying social system of “aristocrats” and “working class” that is no longer applicable in the 1940s. The Modern reader would likely warm to the more liberal idea that hard work, and not ancestry, is the key to success. Blanche is likely disliked for being prejudiced, and Stanley garners some favour for being the classic hard-working American.
Furthermore, this comparison makes obvious to the responder that he considers himself to be one with nature. Wordsworth’s exploration of this prominent romantic theme reveals the profound impact Romanticism had on the poem. Anti-Industrialisation beliefs are expressed by Wordsworth in ‘Composed Upon Westminster Bridge’. Wordsworth writes “A sight so touching in its majesty: this city now doth, like a garment wear”, using a simile to describe the tranquil beauty of the London night. London during the industrial revolution was known as a smog covered city due to the prevalence of factory pollution.
Gender and coming out: p.11-14 4.Conclusion: p. 14 As our literature has changed so greatly over the past century, an interesting story which still meets the expectations of the new age has become a rather rare thing. Writing about important concerns of our time- gender, racism and alienation- appears to be considered sophisticated enough only if exerting a certain sterile aura. Cold neon light on rainy night streets, lonely single households saturated with inner dialogue, colourless sex and relationships are among the images and means preferred by writers (and critics) in portraying the last couple of decades. Why, even reading a celebrated modernist like Douglas Copland, who describes alienation among nowadays people so well, can give one the feeling of digesting a plastic bag instead of something juicy, like the mockingbird of Harper Lee, say. And while the sterile taste should be a deliberate effect of Copland's and many others, it is not easy for the average reader to familiarize with it.
Britain in the industrial revolution needed to trade with other countries because it was a lucrative course of action that would also spawn development. Like most common-sense notions, this idea has an element of truth, but the reality is far more complex. Due to its geographical location and its maritime superiority, Britain emerged as the only European country not withered economically by the Napoleonic wars. This allowed it to maintain its merchant base, which provided markets for early manufactured goods. The industrial revolution had a profound socioeconomic effect on the world, and Britain became its driving force due to its technological advances, such as James Watt’s steam engine; and Abraham Darby’s use of coke to smelt iron ore.
During the time, Northern Renaissance artworks concentrated on the idea of nature or naturalism. This realistic and down to earth art visually showed the real world. The artist, Jan Van Eyck, endorsed and perfected naturalism in his artwork. In the early times, he painted books for hours, such as small prayer books, like lavish paintings of scared and daily scenes. Not only he was a good painter, he was also very good and creative when it came to expressing his thoughts and emotions.
UK and Germany both experienced successes and failures at different times with their economic development. The initiator of the industrial revolution, UK did not continue to reap its benefits to as great a degree as other developing nations. UK was among the first to establish a constitutional system which supported the right to private property. Combined with its foray into the banking as well as the public & private credit system, UK was able to be the leader in the first industrial revolution. However, it was surprising to see UK focus more on growing its empire and foreign investments instead of investing in domestic initiatives.
Indeed it is impossible to completely separate the analysis of one event from the other as their instigation and consequences are self-perpetuating and intertwined. As such the discussion of their individual importance in history is irrelevant, whether viewed economically, socially or through hindsight, it is only as a whole that true rise of global inequality can be ascertained. Industrialisation and Imperialism play a particularly circular role in the creation of global inequality, as the success or failure of one event is reliant upon the success or failure of the other. However, what can be clearly determined by historical accounts today is that Industrial Revolution was the most significant contributor to the rise of global economic inequality. Prior to 1757, India held the monopoly on global textile trade, but as Britain became capable of mass-producing and selling textiles cheaper than their Asian counterparts, India faced severe economic and developmental decline.
