Taylor regards the start of the war as a blunder on both sides, stating that “Hitler had no clear-cut plan and instead was a supreme opportunist, taking advantages as they came.” From this Taylor suggests that neither Hitler nor any other Powers want this war. However, because his argument caused such a debate, it led other historians to criticise the methods Taylor used to establish his argument. Hugh Trevor-Roper says that “Mr Taylor hardly ever refers to Mein Kampf...” Mein Kampf is seen as an essential piece of writing when examining the origins of the war. Within Mein Kampf was not a detailed policy of what Hitler planned to do, but the “oracular pronouncement, pointing the way towards the harsh historical path that Germany must tread” argues Overy. Therefore, Taylor’s analysis was so controversial because it forced people to view the origins of the war in a totally new way, not looking at Hitler as a world dominating fascist like everyone thought, but as a normal statesman.
One reviewer of books in The New York Times described the author’s work as being “wonderfully argued.” Another claims that glaring logical fallacies, “fuzzy generalizations, debatable assertions and self-important declarations of the obvious,” generally discredit the international relations maestro. Therefore, Robert Kagan emerges as a highly controversial commentator who, at the very least, has a grasp on the American psyche, fears and all. II. Author Background Robert Kagan was born in Athens, NY in 1958. He worked as a political advisor to Congressman Jack Kemp, before joining the Reagan administration.

This novel breaks the commonly portrayed political superhero stereotype by showing that even the most divine being, given the power to do anything he pleases, would rather sit around and watch the world be destroyed before intervening and changing the future for the greater good of mankind. Alan Moore successfully breaks down the effectiveness of superheroes portrayed in your average comic book with his use of Dr.Manhattan:Super-powers and the superpowers inside his graphic novel Watchmen. Dr.Manhattan is made out to be less than divine. The American’s “placing our superhuman benefactor in the position of a walking nuclear deterrent”(Dr.Manhattan:Super-powers and the superpowers.II), depicting him as the Vitruvian Man and having a God present among mere mortals all lead to Moore being able to break down the common conceptions about superheroes.

The aim of this essay is to draw the attention to the people who don't aware that the fundamental cause of the cold war was a clash of ideologies between the superpowers, because of increased the radices of ideologies of this war and many historians negotiate for the causes. First of all, I started with the structure of the cold war (the origins of the cold war). During this section I argued that why the conflict started?, and who was the inciter? to be the introduction of the causes. Secondly, I would be deeper to prove the cause, so I would argue about some schools of thought, the orthodox or traditionalist thinkers who blamed the Soviet for the confrontation and give some historians views to prove this school.
The debates on the United Nations Security Council become particularly vigorous after the cold war. Major concerns on the Security Council are over effectiveness and representation with demand for transparency in terms of its actions and decision (Basu, 2007; Taylor and Curtis, 2006; Luck, 2006). This paper will attempt to look at various contributions of the United Nation Security Council from various scholars view in terms of its power and functions. According to O’Byrne (2003:81) in his view, “the Security council is probably the most powerful of the UN’s organs and is responsible for peacekeeping, interventions, and sanctions against warring or rogue states”. Byrne further points that it is unreliable to consitently defend human rights standard and other rights related issues.
