Causes of Dictatorship in Russia

- Causes of Dictatorship in Russia Around the 20th century, the end of the First World War cleared the way for the formation of democratic regimes.

The February Revolution in France

- The February Revolution in France The February Revolution in France gave impetus to a series of revolutionary explosions in Western and Central Europe. However the new French Republic did not support these movements. The stage was set when the unrest caused by the economic effects of severe crop failures in 1846--47 merged with the discontent caused by political repression of liberal and nationalist aspirations. In the German states, popular demonstrations and uprisings (Feb.--Mar., 1848) led to the dismissal of unpopular ministers and the calling of a national parliament to draft a constitution for a united Germany....   [tags: Papers]

- The Responsibility of the Arms Race or the Alliance System for the Outbreak of War in 1914 No justification of the commencement of war in 1914 can completely avoid considering acutely the nature and the concoction of the alliance system and the arms race. The coalitions that had initially served the cause of serenity, almost instinctively helped maneuver a domesticated altercation into being a universal war. Accordingly the precariousness of the arms race and the pre-war alliances make them primary instigators of World War I....   [tags: Papers]

Otto Van Bismarck And State So

- Bismarck used the media to his advantage. He used it only when it suited him, and never realized that the implications he were presenting were wrong. When world depression in 1875 hit, and assassination attempts were made on the Kaiser, Bismarck engineered an outpouring loyalty from the nation to the Kaiser ~ anyone who opposed him or the Kaiser was characterized as a traitor, and disloyal. In 1878, an election proved Bismarck&#8217;s ideologies to be used truly to his advantage. Because emotions ran high during the assassination attempts, Bismarck was able to put together a coalition of conservative deputies that gave him a large majority and put the Reichstag in his &#8220;ultima...   [tags: essays research papers]

Modern Nationalism

- Modern nationalism began as a liberal reaction to the autocracy of the dynastic states of Europe. Before the nineteenth century, nationality was based upon personal allegiance to a monarch. So a Frenchman living in 1785 would rightfully consider himself a subject of the bourbon king Louis xvi rather than a citizen of France. Moreover, the Frenchman need not even have been French by language and tradition as most of the dynastic states were made up of a mixture of culturally diverse peoples....   [tags: National Identity, History of Europe]

Other arms have also been attributed to Bosnia in the 19th century. I finally thought of a way to get at this question of the origin of the current Bosnian flag: numismatics, of course.
