The city of York has gone through several incarnations since its founding by the Romans in 71 AD, from its time as a fortress city to being one of the cultural, economic and religious centers of the U.K., York has been an important part of the history of the region. With each succeeding occupation from the Romans, to the Vikings to finally the English York has been adapted to suit the needs of its inhabitants and it shows through the diverse relics of architecture, cultural backgrounds and social nuances that have ingrained themselves into the population and landscape of the area. It is through the study of historical text and architectural ruins that we are able to have a glimpse into diverse history of the region, just as King George once remarked 'The history of York is the history of England' we are able to see the history of the country in nutshell so to speak since the city itself has been occupied by the Romans, Saxons, Vikings and Normans, been the scene of numerous battles that have shaped the nation in what it is today and as such is rich in the sort of architectural and cultural history that is unique to the British nation. This paper seeks to show the different architectural, cultural and social changes that have happened to York through numerous historical accounts and how all of these changes that it has inherited have culminated in the present.read more

The occurrence of the Second World War could really be termed as a continuation of the First World War. The important events after the WWI had really impacted and eventually caused the insurgence of another world war. It is noteworthy to say this early that since the beginning of ancient civilizations until the two world wars and the subsequent world events up to this contemporary period the root of all the conflicts is no other than the pursuit of power, in this particular case world dominance and supremacy.read more
Sometimes we doubt, whether the Cold War has been a "real" war. We might think that the Cold War was hardly a "real" war due to the absence of real military actions between the nations. On the one hand, "the reality" of war is not limited by military operations. On the other hand, the history of the Cold War is filled with military examples of a "real" war. That stage of historical development requires thorough re-consideration through the prism of its chronology and the most important events. WWII will become a good basis for comparison, because for many of us the Second World War remains the most vivid representation of what "real" war is.read more

Paul Fussell, author, social critic, historian and a noted University of Pennsylvania Professor of English literature, believes that the World War I was the chief instrument that changed the approach of British literature. His belief was that the war motivated the writers to indulge in creating characters that are fundamentally ‘modern' and their presence changed the basic structure of the literature and British literature lost its innocence. Fussell also suggested that traditional themes were reconstructed and the language of literature also changed along with the themes involved. (Lamb, 227-8) In a way these statements are true and if Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises is taken into consideration then there would be enough evidence to support Fussell's belief. Regina Sweeney's essay La Padique Anastasie: Wartime Censorship and French Bourgeois Mortality published in Douglas Peter Mackaman's World War I and the Cultures of Modernity also supports the fact that the First World War indeed had a profound influence on the modern society. But before we indulge into discussion and analysis it would be relevant to enumerate the variables of modernism or modern society or culture.read more
Indeed, the world wars that happened in history were two events which claimed millions of lives, stained interstate relationships, damaged billions worth of properties, and other possible injuries inflicted to humankind. Those were among the dark ages of the world. Though it happened years ago the scars left to its victims remain to be felt until this modern time. On the contrary, during the height of the entrance of the United States to the Second World War, a drastic change occurred within American society which can be considered as a phenomenon. One of the disregarded sectors of the society was given a wide variety of opportunities to participate actively which helped the American situation in times of war.read more
Francis Fukuyama considers war and violence as an unavoidable, inevitable and essential part in the process of state-building. Essentially, Fukuyama agrees with Thomas Carothers in contending against Western governments-sponsored sequencing of development efforts in developing countries. Fukuyama is skeptical in the way that the United States and other Western governments support liberal autocrats. First, they establish order, pursue a policy of economic development and then establish democracy. The author is right in questioning the level of influence of these Western countries over the autocrats in the developing countries. He even looked at several examples in history where authoritarian regimes gradually transitioned to a more democratic system without following the sequence of events described by Huntington and by Zakaria.read more
