Reign of Hitler Term Paper

… The Prussian army wanted to ensure that the individuals that were recruited and ultimately chosen were going to be loyal to the cause.

Prussian influence was also evident in the use of the Canton System, which was created by Frederick William.

This system of conscription was important because it allowed the…. [read more]

This is due to the continuous struggles for reaching a positive agreement between the conflicting parties in the country, as well as the failure to…. [read more]

Peasant Life During the Meiji Restoration Thesis

… Peasant Life During the Meiji Restoration

The Meiji Restoration brought political, social and economic changes in the life of Japan that needed a period of sacrifice, like most of the changings following a revolution or a change of system in the life of a country. The transition from the Tokugawa to the Meiji period is considered a period of abrupt passing from a feudal Japan into a capitalist society. During that period, the rural population represented more than two thirds of the total population. The peasants were the main working force and sources of income for the country's resources. The industrial era was in its early stages and still running a long way until being able to take over from the agricultural sector.

The political…. [read more]

Jesus Was He Jew or Christian Term Paper

… Jesus, Jew or Christian

The common confusion as to whether Jesus Christ was Jew or Christian basically derives from the unclear or misunderstood relationship between Judaism and Christianity. The importance of this relationship, in turn, derives from the universal view or acceptance of Jesus Christ as the Messiah of the Jews, the fulfillment of Messianic aspirations and the lack of knowledge that Christianity started as a Jewish sect. Many assume that Judaism, the religion of the Jews, and Christianity are two different religions. An overall ignorance of the Bible by professing Christians themselves and a long period of anti-semitism account for the mis-interpretation or misreading of the Bible and the consequent discrediting or hatred of the Jews. This misreading or lack of knowledge of Jesus…. [read more]
