History after WWI through WWII

In general, world history can be considered a succession of experiments, just as modern science. On the other hand, both modern science and history are studied by gathering facts and figures and by putting together the information this obtained.

Surrealism, Dadaism, Fauvism, Cubism are some of the genres of 20th century art. They reflect, first of all, a quest for individual independence, for breaking rules in terms of the creation process, and an attempt to find new ways of expression rather than the classical ones. They also reflect a continuous experimentation in terms of form, shape and colouring.

Impossible for me to answer, since I don't have the book and don't know what the Shanfei story is.

The Indian National Congress, Gandhi, Tilak and the India Act were all different instruments by which (1) Indian nationalist came to exist and be defined within the Indian population, (2) Indian nationalism was promoted at a country level and (3) it became the main instrument of fighting against the English rule. Gandhi himself became the spokesperson of this new Indian nationalism.

5. Ever since the 19th century, China saw itself torn between the imperialist powers, with economic interests in the country, and local rulers fighting one another. Its quest for autonomy was a similar story, with the Nationalists and Communists battling it out in the end over a bitter civil war. In this sense, the quest for autonomy was indeed done at the cost of stability.

6. In both cases (Japan and Germany), the rise of fascism came on a weakening of other regional powers (England and France in Europe, China in Far East Asia) and the way of action was similar in both Germany's and Japan's case. This relied on provocation acts (the Mukden incident, in Japan's cases, the remilitarization of the Ruhr, the rearming - in Germany's case) that were accepted by England, France or China with either hope of avoiding a military confrontation (the European case) or because the armed forces were not prepared to retaliate (China's case). If we point out to the fact that retaliation was not possible because of Chinese weaknesses, we can sustain the argument that the Mukden Incident was possible due to Chinese weaknesses.

7. WWI and the depression brought out flaws that the African nationalist could speculate on their quest to freedom. They saw these events as expressions of the fact that European rule was already having more problems than it could handle. With Garvey, the black population saw their first ideologist who put the Black race on the first plan.

8. WWI and the depression brought a mistrust in the capitalist ideas and the capitalist world during the 1920s and 1930s. At this point, the Communist experiment in the Soviet Union seemed to be fully functional and there were voices suggesting that this economic system could better provide for the population. This is most likely why there was an overall mistrust that led people either towards socialism/communism or towards nationalism, seen as stable, strong solutions. In art as well, painters like Diego Rivera saw communism as a way out of the economic situation many countries found themselves in.

9. World War II virtually started the same for Europe, China or the U.S.: as regional aggressions either against their own countries (China, the U.S.) or against their regional interests (Europe). Indeed, World War II didn't become WWII until all these regional conflicts were united as a global one with the countries joining up forces in two different camps. Until then, we may consider that the military conflicts were regional ones.

10. Mukden Incident (1931) - the Mukden Incident was provoked by Japanese officers as a motivation for invading and annexing Manchuria, part of China.

A the Rape of Nanjing (1937) - is a war crime committed by the Japanese army in the Chinese city of Nanjing, where the Japanese committed a number of atrocities.

Asia for the Asians" - a racist slogan that the Japanese implemented as an instrument against White domination in Asia.

A guerrilla war - a type of warfare that does not necessarily respect general war rules and manoeuvres and that allows smaller number of individuals to combat larger armies.

A anschluss (1938) - the union between Austria and Nazi Germany into… [END OF PREVIEW]
