  • Nationalism In German Music
    2,786 words
    Until the nineteenth century, music was generally regarded as an international language. Folk music had always been in place and linked directly with particular regions. On a larger scale though, European music was a device for expression through the application of Italian techniques and styles. In other words, its technical vocabulary was Italian, and from the time of the early baroque, European music, in general, had evolved its styles and technical devices from the developments of Italian com...
  • Meinecke Notes Hitlers
    3,137 words
    How Convincing Do You Find Meineckes Explanation For The Rise Of National Socialism As a historian, I appreciate the absurdity of the rise of Nazism, however I have found Meineckes explanation of the rise of Nazism, given its date of publication, to be not so much a disclaimer on behalf of the German people, as others have found it to be, but almost an attempt at academic vindication of the Anglo-American post-war view of Germany, often supported by uncheckable sources. Before assessing the book...
  • Political Movements Among Some National Groups
    3,054 words
    How did the Habsburg Monarchy cope with the demands of mass politics 1867-1914 The Habsburg Monarchy first had to deal with the Magyar demands of autonomy which culminated into the Compromise of 1867. From then the Emperor Francis Joseph would have the title of King of Hungary. This dual monarchy was to be a success in satisfying both the Habsburgs and the Magyars but had the effect of causing both disappointment and resentment to the significant national minorities in the empire. The Habsburg M...

    NATIONALISM AND NATIONAL MOVEMENTS: 1848-1871 in 1848 liberal and nationalist sentiments in Europe erupted in a series of revolutions but the revolutions of 1848, after a brief moment of success, ultimately failed liberals throughout Europe proved unable to establish and consolidate political power, and conservatives in the end retained control of most states but national feeling grew more intense after 1848 by 1871 both Italy and Germany came into being as new nation-states the United States, i...
  • National German Faith
    1,268 words
    The Struggle Against Christianity in Germany The struggle against Christianity in Germany assumed greater proportions by the end of 1941. On Nov. 10 the official Vatican radio station in Rome broadcast, without comment, a catechism published by the German weekly Nord land, organ of the 'German Believers in God,' in its issue of Sept. 15. There the principles of the German faith were given in the form of questions and answers. Some of the answers read: 'We National Socialists are believers in God...
  • German Attitudes And Beliefs At The Time
    1,246 words
    The rise of National Socialism in post- WWI Germany is an understandable reaction to the problems of the Versailles Peace Treaty, considering the German attitudes and beliefs at the time. These attitudes and beliefs were the result of generations of Prussian militarism, extreme racist nationalism, and, most importantly, the failure of the Treaty of Versailles signed in June of 1919. The rise of the Nazi party, and their extremist National Socialist doctrine appealed directly to these attitudes a...
  • National Socialism
    396 words
    National Socialism was similar in many respects to Italian fascism (see Fascism). The roots of National Socialism, however, were peculiarly German, grounded, for example, in the Prussian tradition of military authoritarianism and expansion; in the German romantic tradition of hostility to rationalism, liberalism, and democracy; in various racist doctrines according to which the Nordic peoples, as so-called pure Aryans, were not only physically superior to other races, but were the carriers of a ...
  • Intervention Of The Allied Nations
    466 words
    2 SEP 2002 JAPANESE AND GERMAN WARFARE The Germans and Japanese were working on taking over the World in the Second World War and had it not been for the intervention of the allied nations, they very well could have picked off the nations one-by-one until a worldwide settlement was established. The Americans would not have entered the war if Germany would have stayed within it's own compounds. The Nazi party possibly could have survived, although the German citizens would have eventually tired o...
  • National Socialist Party
    3,117 words
    National Socialism National Socialism, commonly called Nazism, was a German political movement initiated in 1920 with the organization of the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei). The movement culminated in the establishment of the Third Reich, the totalitarian German State led by Adolf Hitler from 1933 to 1945. The roots of National Socialism were peculiarly German, grounded for example, in the Prussian tradition of military authoritarianism a...
  • Absolute Power State
    1,485 words
    Information on Roger Griffin was minimal and not enough to convey the attitudes of his ideas. The book was presented in a strict factual way with emphasis on the true occurrences in history. It can be implied that Griffin's writing shows no personality in writing style except that the facts are the true basis of input. Fascism contains a political attitude that pushed to dominate political life in central, southern, and eastern-central Europe from 1919 and 1944. All fascist movements had an emph...

After the end of what has become known as the Great War, many people were at edge of their subsistence; millions had been killed in four years of taking extraneous steps foreword and years of preparation backward. Deprived, the people of Europe were, but of kept peace rather than misfortune. The Germans were the ones to blame for this nightmare and they were about to pay the price dearly as the final papers of the Treaty of Versailles were signed. Along the war guilt ...
  • Italians And German Forces
    2,268 words
    At the end of World War I the victorious nations formed the League of Nations for the purpose of airing international disputes, and of mobilizing its members for a collective effort to keep the peace in the event of aggression by any nation against another or of a breach of the peace treaties. The United States, imbued with isolationism, did not become a member. The League failed in its first test. In 1931 the Japanese, using as an excuse the explosion of a small bomb under a section of track of...
  • Germans And Hitler
    1,834 words
    Hitler Adolf Hitler, the simple mention of his name conjures up memories of total war, death and destruction on an unprecedented scale, and always the deaths of millions of Jews and other undesirables in the Holocaust. How did this happen? How was it possible that a failed artist could rebuild Germany in just six years, challenge the world to mortal combat, and nearly win? He simply possessed what few other politicians of his day had, he was a man driven by an unquenchable thirst for revenge and...
