- The First World War was thought to be the only war of its level and kind and was thus, also called the “Great War”. Fearing its recurrence, the victors of the said war agreed under common terms that a binding organization tasked with fulfilling said job (preventing a world war from happening again) was necessary and the League of Nations was created. However, as we repeatedly learned from school, the League, while successful in some, was a great failure and the Second World War happened. The Charter of the League was based on Woodrow Wilson’s the 14 Points.... [tags: World War II, League of Nations, World War I]

- The time period was the early Twentieth century. The first war of the world has been raging for nearly two and a half years. The United States was fresh off the Spanish-American War and the Philippine–American War. Looking to settle down and get back to normalcy, the American people had had enough. The last thing they were out looking for was ways to get involved in another. That attitude is what Incumbent President Woodrow Wilson ran his campaign on. And is exactly what got him in office. Although it was a close race, Wilson would edge out his Republican counterpart Charles Hughes by three percentage points in the popular vote and by twenty three electoral votes....

- Woodrow Wilson diplomatically pushed for an international order centered on the concept of a politically plural world where national self-determination was imperative. Wilsonian Idealism developed from a traditional American belief in a new world order of self-government, enlightened diplomacy, and peace based on a symbiotic global economy. Woodrow Wilson’s new global order was a direct policy offshoot of the Monroe Doctrine, Hay’s Open Door, and Roosevelt’s Corollary policies. While Wilson’s commitment to a politically plural world was traditional for U.S.... [tags: American History]

- Post WWII Affect After the Allies had won the war, America became the world’s superpower. The communist communities such as Germany, France, Austria, Belgium and Greece fell like the domino-affect.

- Introduction A vision is a statement that paints an idealized picture of what an organization wants to become. Jick (2002) offers a similar definition. He calls it, “an attempt to articulate what a desired future for a company would look like” (p. 142). Although many definitions for vision are similar, the effects visions have on organizations vary. For some the vision is an agent of change, for others it is a source of confusion. The difference lies in certain elements of the vision, and how the leader implements the vision throughout the organization.... [tags: Business, Constructing a Vision Statement]

- Directly after World War II the US effectively “shut the door” on all communist nations. A red scare descended on the US as the iron curtain enclosed around Eastern Europe. Mistrust and misunderstanding led to decades of arms races and close calls with a people that helped us to defeat Hitler and Japan. Meanwhile, the “open door” in China was slammed in our faces by our own ignorance and suspicion. Though the confrontationist policy of the US may have been an effective tool to use in wartime while dealing with a dictator, it was not correct to use in peacetime....
